The Mediaeval Baebes

The allure is undeniable. Seven talented, attractive women breathe renewed
life into the rich texts of medieval songs and poetry. Their hauntingly
beautiful music captures the imagination and devotion of modern audiences.
They are the Mediaeval Baebes, and in ten years they have placed three of
their albums at the top of the UK classical charts and performed before
standing room only audiences in the UK and United States.

Combining passion for their music with an intelligent sense of humour, The Baebes appeal extends to a wide range of audiences. They defy any traditional classification, and their audience is made up of fans from teens to seniors. Lovers of classical, folk, Celtic, pop and rock music all listen to the Baebes. Their music is in turns soothing and electrifying. Founding member Katharine Blake is also the music director and lead composer and arranger for the band. Born in London, she was classically trained at the Purcell School of Music and Richmond College. Through her work with the Baebes, Katharine has enabled audiences to discover largely unknown medieval texts by making them accessible and vital in the modern age. The medieval themes of nature, the life cycle, love, and longing are as relevant in 2007 as they were in 1407.
