Testimonials

“I have been meaning to drop you a line to say a really big thank you for being so great on Saturday. Everyone is still talking about how lovely the music was and how people in the tea room of all ages were engrossed in the stories. It worked so well in that space and really conjured up the atmosphere so well. The Abbey having been closed for several years after post fire restoration, this event I think gave people a real boost and brought the place to life.”

“We hope to do other events on a similar theme again so I will definitely be looking you up! Please can you pass on my sincere thanks to Amanda and Kate for their performance on Friday – they occasioned so many positive comments from our guests, and they really added to the atmosphere on the night. Please find attached an image from the night from our photographer – as you can see, they looked brilliant!”

Vikings

Location: London
Price from: Enquire for details

About the Act

Vikings were formed by Maggie-Beth Sand (lead singer and multi-instrumentalist) and Mark Powell (guitar, hurdy-gurdy, keyboards) in 2010, and their first album, “Stella Splendens,” was released that year.

Since then, they have performed at concert and festival stages across the UK and western Europe.

2014 saw the release of their critically-acclaimed second album, "Myths and Muses," on which the band moved into more electronic territory, with the incorporation of dance and dubstep beats.

Their third album, "Shieldmaidens," which delves further into rock and symphonic metal styles (with the collaboration of a very special guest executive producer!) is scheduled for release in April 2016.

Reviews

"Symphonic folk-rock:

 The romantic pageantry of mediaeval art and culture ranks alongside sic-fi/fantasy as fertile grounds for symphonic rock interpretation, Blackmore’s Night being a prominent progenitor. On second outing, ‘Myths and muses,’ Britain’s Vikings brings engaging range and sophistication to the process of imbuing old-world themes and melodies with contemporary rhythmic punch.

…Their sumptuous arrangements brim with lavishly-orchestrated timbres. Elsewhere the band employs Middle Eastern motifs/instruments for genre cross-pollination (‘Alexandria’) and further expands its world-music palette via subtly-employed didgeridoo.

‘Myths and Muses’ is based thematically on the legends of mediaeval Europe and England, Scandinavian, Celtic and Greek history and Roman mythology. Intelligently conceived and very well-played, there is plenty here to gratify both heart and mind."

Rating: four stars out of five.

The six-member London band present their second studio album. The cover art, with a Viking warrior on horseback shows what awaits us. The Myths and Muses theme is the thread connecting the songs on the album, again demonstrating Vikings original touch."

“Medieval Noyse have played for us at Museum Open Days and I am sure that their lively music and vibrant costume contributed towards more people making an effort to come into the grounds and see what was happening.

Thank you so much for a wonderful morning of medieval music making and dancing…. You were amazing! (Happy Deputy Head)

Thank you so much for an absolutely wonderful evening. You were fantastic, and the closing ballad with audience participation was amazing. We couldn’t have wished for a better evening. Thank you so much! I hope you have a safe trip home, and don’t have too far to drive!
