About this event

The Stroud Sacred Music Festival at St Laurence Church, Stroud, brings a world class line-up of musicians year after year and has done so since 2015. This year's theme is Music from Out of Exile, in honour of the tragic circumstances so many people endure at the current time.

EVENING CONCERT, ST LAURENCE'S CHURCH 6pm-10.30pm : We are thrilled to welcome back Syrian ‘queen of the qanun' Maya Youssef, now with her brilliant sextet, as our headline act in the evening concert on Saturday 9 July. Other contributors to the concert are the Muslim, Christian and Jewish musicians who make up the Eastern Strings & Nabra quartet, Cecilia Ndhlovu from Zimbabwe, Matthew Heyse-Moore and The Raga Babas, the house band. Food, hot drinks and cakes will be available all evening, too.

MORNING WORKSHOP, ST LAURENCE'S CHURCH 10.30am-12.30pm: In the morning world-class masters of Indian classical music K. Sridhar and Jesse Bannister offer the rare treat of an ’Informance on the Unstruck Sound’ with music, improvisation, presentations and audience dialogue.
