Werewolves in the spotlight

A concert of songs about legendary tales of English werewolves is being taken on tour by South West-based folk act the Wren Band – and they’re coming to Derby on June 28.

The band is hoping the popularity of all things werewolf and vampire will bring a new audience to traditional English folk music.

The concert, which premiered at Exeter Northcott Theatre on June 2, features 21 songs and two stories – all about legendary creatures.

The concert uses stories in Sabine Baring-Gould’s folklore writing including his famous work The Book of Were-wolves as the inspiration for the show. Story-collector Baring-Gould (1834-1924), who lived in Devon, researched the tales and wrote them down in his books, capturing the legends for future generations.

The show is in the Darwin Suite at Derby’s Assembly Rooms.
