The fun loving and uber cool Hermes Experiment really are the talk of the town with a cabinet full of awards. Their experimental programmes fall somewhere between a classical concert and a club night. Featuring the unconventional combination of Harp, Clarinet, Double Bass and Soprano their programmes brim with the familiar and fresh. For their Festival debut, they have chosen a programme packed with male and female composers from a variety of genres. Expect an extraordinary evening of musical discovery and surprise.
