“Res Publica” is a brand new musical touring piece, from brilliant South West band: The People’s String Foundation, (virtuoso violinist Ben Sutcliffe and co founder and composer Zaid Al-Rikabi). This Autumn the boys are packing a 32 piece Gypsy Orchestra into a suitcase and taking a “Virtual Orchestra” on tour with them as a live duo, to perform their newest album release “Res Publica” to audiences nationwide. 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.
