Bechstein Sessions: Nobody’s Jig

Informal performances in the Bechstein Bar


  • Nobody's Jig
  • Victoria Hodgkinson voice
  • Sergio Bucheli lute
  • Tara Viscardi harp

The Bechstein Sessions are a series of informal and intimate performances in the Bechstein Bar.

Nobody’s Jig explores the intersection between folk and early Baroque music-making traditions, giving voice to an old and intimate tradition of song repertoire that tells universal tales of life, love and loss. Passionate about storytelling, the ensemble transports listeners by sharing songs from the aristocratic courts of central Europe to the taverns, drawing rooms and landscapes of Ireland and the British Isles, offering a unique window into the past.
