About Us

Hurly Burly spring 2015


Hurly Burly is an early music ensemble based in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada.

We are a local not-for-profit group dedicated to researching and performing early music, most notably music from the Medieval and Renaissance periods.



Active Members (in alphabetical order):

Kathleen Adamson: Violin, rebec, voice
Karina Bates (Business Manager): Voice, recorders, rebec
Roy Hagman (Linguist): Voice, vielle, citole, lute-guitar, pipes
Tanah Haney (Musical Director): Voice, harp, recorders
Cindy Ellen Morgan (MC): Voice, dulcimer, harp
Barbara Ratz (Decorations): Voice, mandolin, recorder
Leigh Symonds: Voice, flute

Other Members:

Ken Field (voice, recorders, cornemus) was with us for over a decade, and we’re finding it hard to imagine Hurly Burly without him. We’re hoping we can persuade him to make the occasional guest appearance, however, so all may not be lost! In the meantime we wish him all the best in his new home. You can hear Ken on Syng We In Thys Hall, and on our newest recordings, which will hopefully be posted here soon.

Former member Sue Corbishley was with Hurly Burly for many years and lent her lovely soprano voice to our debut recording, “Syng We In Thys Hall” (see our CDs page).

With special thanks for their ongoing support and invaluable assistance to:
Paul Halasz (kitchen elf), Julie Morris (ticket taker), Curtis Dreidger (floral provider) and Marg Morgan (baker extraordinaire).

    What a great picture! Especially the harps….being a Celtic Harper I look for those things.
    And love the sound clips for “Syng…”, will have to have Father Christmas/The Green Knight put one in my stocking or under the kilt.
    Best regards,
