Two Noble Kinsmen @ Shakespeare’s Globe

The 6 week run of Shakespeare’s ‘Two Noble Kinsmen’ has finally ended. I was lucky enough to stand in on double bass for several shows and even luckier to get to wear this ‘hip medieval get up’ and tread the boards The music was a lot of fun to play, I’ve been a fan of Eliza Carthy’s playing and music for awhile so it was great to hang out with her and play some of her music.
