The Shakespeare Heptet are dedicated to setting Shakespeare’s Sonnets to music We play the sonnets as songs, each one performed in a musical style that suits the individual sonnet’s contents, from the sweetest and warmest to the darkest and coldest. We have folk sonnets, blues sonnets, punk sonnets, tango, bossanova, rock, calypso, dance, classical. . .and more.
Why the sonnets? Because they’re Shakespeare’s hidden jewel: 154 poems about love.
Excellent music (6 string, 12 string, electric guitars, percussion, double bass, keyboard. . .and more)
Stunning vocals with intricate harmonies (solo voice, two part harmonies, three part harmonies.)
Excellent words (William Shakespeare!)
The sonnets are full of passions. We aim to bring those passion to modern audiences using music.
The band in our current form has been performing for three years and has played at the Bristol Shakespeare Festival, Madhurst Arts Festival, the Chilled Cider Festival & Live At The Tower of London. Band members: Richard Gibson (12 & 6 string guitar, vocals), Silvana Montoya (vocals), Aaron Power (percussion and vocals).
