The Herdwyck Consort is a group of singers based mainly in Cumbria. The name ‘herdwyck’ is originally a Norse word meaning ‘sheep pastures’ and reflects the group’s strong connections with the Lake District. Since its first concert in 2010, the Herdwyck Consort has delighted audiences throughout Cumbria and further afield for its emotive and exciting performances, especially of renaissance and baroque vocal music. The choir was delighted to celebrate its fifth anniversary in 2015 with a special sheep-themed concert as part of the Mary Wakefield Festival. Most recently, it was a finalist in the Choir of the Year category of the Cumbria Life Culture Awards 2017. The Consort previously performed at LDSM in 2016.
