Melody of moonlight

Performers: Richard Hall and friends.

A presentation about a well-known musical family: the Smith family were at the centre of music making in 19th century Dorchester – teaching it, composing it and performing it.  Come and learn their story and enjoy their affecting piano solos, dashing piano duets and settings of gently humorous dialect verse by their very good friend William Barnes – Victorian ‘easy listening’ at its best.
