Lady Georgianna performing yesterday




Love in the Pleasure Garden

This coming Saturday, 27th August 2011, the Eighteenth Century Girl Band, Lady Georgianna, will delight and titillate Dundee concert-goers with a recital of Regency music performed on harpsichord, cello and voice.

Wearing the flamboyant fashions of the Georgian and Regency eras, the trio, Allegra (Abigail Seabrook), Isabella Wrighten (Hetti Price) and Signora Storace (Micaela Schmitz), perform popular hits from the time of Marie Antoinette and Mad King George.

With voice, cello and harpsichord, their aim is to bring to life the songs of the 18th century pleasure garden, interspersed with poetry and readings, for an unforgettable Georgian experience.

The event is the regular "Cappuccino Concert" organised by the Friends of Wighton. Held in the atmospheric surrounds of the Wighton Centre, upstairs in Dundee's Wellgate library, the morning starts at 10.30am with complimentary coffee and newspapers; the music starts at 11am. Admission is £5 on the door.

The Wighton Centre was specially built as a study and performance venue to house the internationally important Wighton Collection of historical Scottish music books. The centre also houses a beautiful French harpsichord, which will be used for this concert.

The concert by Lady Georgianna is part of their 2011 tour, which includes venues from Cornwall up to Cromarty. A celebration of the Pleasure Gardens in the time of Jane Austen, the tour features music and songs with references to fairytale lands, tales of love and loss, and the famous “Dark Walks”
