Central to our touring shows are performances by our professional musicians. They will also research the content, make new arrangements or write new material. Sometimes we will recruit a volunteer choir/band to augment the Wren musicians.
Wren Music will embark on a specialist performance project, either in response to a commission, a special anniversary or just because we can!
If you’re interested in booking performances of the shows below, or have a special commission in mind, please contact us.
This concert is an exploration of all things gothic in English folk song. All the songs are about Dartmoor make special reference to the Baring-Gould folk song collection. It was performed as part of the Dartmoor Society 20th Anniversary Celebration in 2019. For this performance, we had a supporting choir and the show toured with a slideshow of pictures from the Dartmoor Archive.
Shore to Shore

This concert has been delivered in partnership with visiting musicians from Newfoundland, and toured to Derby, Hartlepool and Union Chapel London. As well as extensively across Devon, most recently as part of the Devon Newfoundland Story in 2017. The return leg is planned in Newfoundland in 2023
