Lines from a Wanderer


  • Marcus Farnsworth baritone
  • James Baillieu piano

After winning several vocal prizes, Marcus Farnsworth has gone on to found and direct the Southwell Music Festival. A highlight of his programme is John Casken’s cycle, which he and James Baillieu premièred in 2016.

Due to essential maintenance the Wigmore Hall Restaurant will be closed on the day of this event. Hot and cold drinks will still be available to purchase prior to concert and during the interval, but no food will be served.
