Res Publica

The People’s String Foundation

The People’s String Foundation are an army of bohemians and vagabonds hailing from the grass roots of British music culture; Mixing world, classical and urban styles in anarchic embroilment. This Cornish band is fronted by the virtuoso violinist Ben Sutcliffe (Director of Music for Rogue Theatre, Kneehigh Theatre and the Minack Theatre) with co-founder and composer Zaid Al-Rikabi at the core.

This autumn Ben and Zaid are packing their 32 piece Gypsy Orchestra into a suitcase and taking the ‘Virtual Orchestra’ on tour as a live duo, with their newest album release Res Publica. This music is sure to set your heart racing, get your toes tapping, and warm the soul with the people’s spirit and grafter’s hearts.
