The Lost Sound Concert at Mothecombe House

In a stunning setting, within a traditional walled garden, The Lost Sound Folk Choir will bring you songs of the sea, of country life and of love and loss. Their songs are stories of adventure and of living, songs to rekindle memories and ignite the imagination. With full choir, both all-male and all female ensembles, new trios and many new singers, we have a wonderful concert, rich in texture and colour just waiting for you!
