This is the augmented Wolf Hall Band recording the music for the play’s transfer to Broadway NY. The composer is Stephen Warbeck kneeling first on the right. We were in Alcester near Stratford at Vada Studios, a beautiful Elizabethan manor house owned by record producer Matt Terry.
I played on all the films in the Lords of the Rings Trilogy. I played hammered dulcimer as part of the Hobbit band for the scene where Gandalf rides into the Shire. I remember the first recording session at a Abbey Road studios very well because it was the 11th of September 2001.
