Thoroughbass is an Early Music ensemble, who have trouble staying in the past. Established in 2009 by director and harpsichordist Diana Weston, the ensemble often performs contemporary music as well as that of bygone eras. The result is varied, innovative and original repertoire and some fascinating concerts.
