Historical Musician in Residence, Sally Garden, returns with a double-bill of her popular 'coffee-house' concerts in the elegant Marryat Hall. Join her as she celebrates the arrival of the splendid Wighton Harpsichord - a unique, versatile and first-class instrument for the people of Scotland's east coast. Two mornings of fine Scottish, French and Italian music in a relaxed and friendly setting.

Not putting up with Sir Thomas Beecham's tongue-in-cheek put down - his irreverent description of the harpsichord as a 'birdcage played with a toasting fork!' - Sally Garden invites recitalist, John Kitchen, and ensemble, Apollo's Banquet to demonstrate the warmth and brilliance of the excellent Wighton Harpsichord in both solo and ensemble roles. Fall under the spell of its sombre passion and easy charm. More at www.wighton.org

In this second of two concerts, Aberdeen-based period instrument ensemble, Apollo's Banquet, directed by David Smith, feature the Wighton Harpsichord in its continuo role. An exciting programme exploring the music of Corelli, C18 Edinburgh's answer to Corelli - the composer William McGibbon, and rare Scots air arrangements by the fine, but neglected Tuscan musician, Francesco Barsanti.
