Acclaimed musicians Blast from the Past are set to take you on a 600-year musical journey in just 90 minutes when they visit Diss Corn Hall next month.

Beginning in the Middle Ages and finishing at the end of the 20th Century – and incorporating everything in between – this fun and fast-moving show is a whistle-stop tour of Western musical history.

Featuring long forgotten songs and tunes, as well as jokes, Blast from the Past paint a vibrant and vivid picture of our musical DNA, mixing the familiar and the obscure, the raucous and the reflective and the courtly and the commonplace.

Complete with a bewildering array of instruments such as hurdy-gurdy, rauschpfeife and vihuela, the show uses tunes, songs and humour to take listeners on a musical journey.

Tickets for the show, set for Saturday, February 7 at 7.30pm, are priced at £8 and are available from www.disscornhall.co.uk or 01379 652241
