Filmed in July whilst the museum was closed for it’s renovations, this month we appeared on the One Show, playing within touching distance of the Mary Rose ship. Anita demonstrated the deep tone of the ‘still shawm’, and Anne played the 3-hole-pipe and tabor. Presenter Richard Mainwaring was particularly impressed by Anne’s ability to keep a steady rhythm whilst playing the melody line.
This was a unique opportunity for us. It was wonderful to play our replicas of the instruments found on the ship so close to the vessel itself.
