We are absolutely thrilled and greatly honoured to be able to bring these two
supremely accomplished musicians to Culmstock.
Crispian Steele-Perkins has received widespread critical acclaim
as a trumpet player with a purity of tone and artistic subtlety
second to none. He collects and restores antique trumpets upon
which he has performed and recorded with The Academy of
Ancient Music, The Kings Consort and The English Baroque Soloists.
Appropriately, he plays the theme tune to one of the BBC’s l
longest-running and most popular TV programmes, the Antiques
Roadshow, among many other screen credits. We look forward to
his visit as much for his playing as his renowned enthusiasm and wit.
