Lucie Skeaping (director)

Lucie Skeaping presents BBC Radio 3’s long-running series ‘The Early Music Show’. Her varied career has taken her from children’s television and playing in pantomime opposite some of England’s best-loved performers, to concerts and broadcasts with both The City Waites and her klezmer band The Burning Bush. A regular columnist for BBC Music Magazine, her publications include Broadside Ballads (Faber Music, winner MIA award Best Classical Music Publication 2006), the recorder anthology Who gave Thee thy Jolly Red Nose? (Peacock Press) and Let’s Make Tudor Music (Stainer & Bell, runner-up TES Schools Book award). She has researched and performed music for TV and film including The Beggar’s Opera (Jonathan Miller, BBC1), Dickens’ London (Peter Ackroyd, BBC2/ Opus Arte), Early Music (series, BBC4), The Pianist (Roman Polanski), and The History of Britain (Simon Schama, BBC1). Her first reconstructions of Jigs were workshopped by members of the RSC in Stratford, and at Dartington Hall Summer School; The City Waites performed Singing Simpkin at the York Early Music Festival, and London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall.
