Programme

Friday 30th June : A Feast of Taiko

This concert features the excitement and talent of youth taiko groups from Devon, the UK and beyond. Featured groups include Gyoko Youth Taiko, who recently delighted a packed Royal Albert Hall in London, and this year’s headliners, The Dublin Taiko Group, from Dublin, Ohio, USA.

 

Saturday 1 July : Taiko Beats (noon)

Taiko is more than just drumming, and there are many different styles of taiko to enjoy.  This concert features 10 different groups, each playing for no more than 10 minutes, making for a varied, action-packed, inspirational taiko show.

 

Sat 1 July 2017 : Pulse & Rock (evening)

Kagemusha Taiko present an exhilarating, uplifting new show which sees the group joined from Japan by former Kodo member, Shogo Yoshii , and from USA by one of the world’s leading taiko performers, Shoji Kameda.   Kagemusha Taiko themselves have toured in Japan, represented European taiko at the World Taiko Gathering in Los Angeles, and featured in the European Taiko Concert in Dusseldorf, Germany.  This is the one and only chance to see “Pulse & Roll” performed with this outstanding line-up of players.
