"The Madrigirls do for Madrigals what Liza Minnelli did for Cabaret"
The Guardian - Hay Festival

The Madrigirls are an a cappella trio who sing 16th and 17th Century madrigals. Madrigals are romantic songs written in several parts which originated in 14th century Italy.

The Madrigirls are vibrant performers who boldly communicate the timeless themes of these songs. The purity of their voices, striking costumes and dramatic interpretations make for a vivid and engaging performance.

The Madrigirls are Alexandra Brown, Heloise Pilkington
and Kate Tomlin. Sexy, humorous and irreverently theatrical,
they bring the beauty and passion of these songs alive.

The Madrigirls are here to tell you that madrigals are happening now.  Part cabaret, part troubadour, part girl band glamour, their powerful and engaging act has led them to perform at a wide variety of venues and events, including Leighton House, Tate Britain and The Wallace Collection.

They have put on beautiful concerts in historic churches such as Southwark Cathedral and St Martin-in-the-Fields, stunned clubbers at alternative venues, entertained at corporate events and helped recreate an authentic atmosphere at Renaissance banquets.  They are also invited to perform at festivals all over the country and are regulars at The Guardian Hay Festival and Port Eliot lit fest, as well as enjoying sell out runs in The Edinburgh Festival.
