Briefly imported for a few shows in the United States, the Wilde Roses is a musical collaboration between singers, multi-instrumentalists, composers, dancers and performers Anna Tam and Emily Alice Ovenden. Musically and visually inspired by the medieval and renaissance world, we draw our repertoire from illuminated manuscripts, courtly song books, Elizabethan broadside ballads and the folk tradition. Fascinated by the stories in these songs - medieval religious imagery so beautifully infused with nature; renaissance tales of piracy, jilted lovers and general folly alongside some of the most sincere and tender love songs that reach to the heart of life and human relationships - we are moved by a desire to explore and recreate the sound world of this historical repertoire and to share these exquisite songs with present day audiences.

Emily and Anna come from different musical backgrounds and met whilst they were both part of the Mediaeval Baebes.
