Last year, English Cabaret went out on the road filming in Scotland, England and Germany.
This month they have been back in the studio, mastering Dreams of Peace & Freedom, ahead of a release of the full recording on July 27th - 100 days before the anniversary of the signing of the ECHR..
In the meantime, the podcast performance, with piano and voices was launched in April
and is now available in episodes at SoundCloud and on their website.
When the lockdown came into force they were putting the finishing touches to a
series of commemorative performances across the country for later in the year.
As the Edinburgh Festival has now been cancelled, the first performances have been postponed, but they are very much hoping the later part of the series which begins in November, may still go ahead as planned.
