Theatre musicians, composers and the founders of the bohemian 32 piece gypsy orchestra The People’s String Foundation.

“The People’s String Foundation is one of the great wonders of the West. I first heard the music of Ben and Zaid in Kneehigh’s production of FUP in 2017: stonking, earthy, organic, delicate, and barn-storming. This led me to their album “The Lost Dreams Of Gilgamesh” which is a joyous and many-splendoured thing. The upcoming “Puppetree” tour by The People’s String Foundation is an impassioned and bold project to bring a larger than life production to poor and/or remote venues. This work, of such big heartedness and brilliance, is desperately needed!” Conductor and Composer – Charles Hazlewood.

“The vocal performances are remarkable and the orchestrations are inventive, exploratory and beautifully performed. The entire piece is fresh and youthfully enthusiastic with clear production values on a classical scale. Surely these musicians and this piece are worthy of consideration for this year’s Mercury prize.” Ralph McTell.
