UK, GLOUCESTERSHIRE - Stroud Sacred Music Festival Evening Concert, Rev Simon Howell, St Laurence Church, Shambles, High Street, Stroud GL5 1JL, 09 Jul 2022

An Act of Peace
Music from out of Exile
The Stroud Sacred Music Festival at St Laurence Church, Stroud, has become an iconic event in the Stroud calendar, bringing a world class line-up of global musicians year after year since 2015. The theme for 2022 is “Music from out of Exile.”
“We are thrilled to welcome back Syrian 'Queen of the Qanan' Maya Youssef, and her brilliant sextet, as our headline act in the evening concert on Saturday 9 July. She is so in demand now and we are extremely lucky to have her with us again this year,” says Rev Simon Howell. Ms. Youssef combines classical music training in quanan with contemporary concerns. Her recent album ‘Finding Home’ tracks the journey of hastily leaving her war-torn homeland and finding sanctuary in UK.
the concert opens with sacred Ukrainian songs by Nadia Posotlatii. She is followed by Cecilia Ndhlovu Mbira player from Zimbabwe who is part of the Nest Collective. The first half is completed with Eastern Strings & Nabra quartet, specially formed for the Festival comprising Christian, Jewish, Muslim and African traditions. Multi-talented composer Matthew Heyse-Moore will follow, preparing a sacred space for headliner Maya Youssef.
Delicious vegan supper as well as cakes and tea will be available from 6.00pm.
A morning workshop, afternoon chant space and hot food are additional attractions.
