The Edinburgh Renaissance Band is a group of 12 Edinburgh-based musicians specialising in the performance of music from the period 1200 – 1600. The Band has delighted audiences of all ages since its formation in 1973, playing Renaissance and Medieval music from many parts of Europe, including the important Scottish repertoire. The Band is noted for the wide variety of instruments used – a selection from over 100.

Since its inception the Band’s aim has been to present informative and well researched programmes with a characteristic blend of informality and musical authenticity – making “early music” easily accessible.

Below is an article about the band published in Edinburgh Life, July/August 2023, to celebrate the band’s 50th Anniversary at the fringe – with more or less the same line-up!

We’re incredibly lucky to have them come to perform for us in Penicuik.
