AN ENERGETIC young Belgian band will bring world class music to Powerstock.

WÖR – back to the 1780s comes to Powerstock Hut on Saturday, January 26 at 7.30pm.

In a collaboration with its sister scheme, Take Art in Somerset, Artsreach, Dorset’s touring arts charity, is excited to be able to bring the vibrant, energetic young Belgian band WÖR to Dorset for a special concert this spring.

Almost 300 years ago, some musicians from around Antwerp, Brussels, Gent and Leuven decided to write down their favourite music. As time passed, however, the paper turned yellow, the ink began to fade, and the music itself was left to gather dust along with the faded manuscripts. That is, until now!

With their finely textured arrangements, WÖR injects new energy into 18th century tunes from the Flanders region of Belgium.

Performing on an array of instruments including saxophone, violin, bagpipes, accordion and guitar, this energetic young band shines an inventive spotlight with a modern twist on tunes from these manuscripts.

Heading to the UK for a short tour this January, Artsreach are delighted to present WÖR live in Powerstock (01308 485474) on Saturday January 26 at 7.30pm. Further information and tickets are available online at
