The Broadside Band

Jeremy Barlow formed The Broadside Band in 1979 to perform popular and dance music from the sixteenth, seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Since then the group has made many recordings of this repertoire and has toured throughout Europe. Other CDs of Renaissance dance music include Danses populaires françaises du XVI siècle (Harmonia Mundi), English Country Dances and Songs and Dances from Shakespeare (Saydisc). For Hyperion the group expanded to a full Baroque orchestra with chorus and soloists to record The Beggar’s Opera (CDA66591/2), restored to its original form and based on Jeremy Barlow’s edition of the work for Oxford University Press. That recording won an Edison Award.
