Peter McCarthy - violone player

Welcome to my website!  

I play a variety of different bass (and double bass) string instruments.

In 2002 I started a concert series in Walthamstow, London E17 - Music in the Village.

Emily White, trombonist, has released on YouTube a performance of a piece I wrote for her, O 'r Galon.

You can view it here.

For St James' Baroque  I play violone and violone grosso, and sometimes large bass violin.

Here are London Viols, returning from playing in Mallorca, in 2018

For twenty four years, I was the bass player for the English Concert.  In 2003 I volunteered myself to manage St. James' Baroque and ended up running it ever since.  Be careful what you volunteer for!

Next season commences

Wednesday September 29th.

Concerts this season will last about 65 minutes, with no interval or refreshments.

Thank you to all who came to Music in the Village concerts this last season - concerts don't add to much without an audience.

Special thanks for the generous gifts that enable our concerts to keep happening.

You can see a list of all the premieres commissioned by and for Music in the Village on the

Premieres page under the  Music in the Village tab.
