a minstrel's taleHistory is at the heart of what Roger Pugh does, in more ways than none.

Firstly he has a long history of performing over several decades. In festivals, theatrical productions, private and corporate functions. He features at outdoor events, medieval banquets, weddings, pubs and hotels. And he’s been doing it across the UK and at times overseas.

Many of his characters are based in history too. Sylvesta the Jester is a medieval jester with authentic music, comedy and entertainment. His Wandering Minstrel is faithful to Tudor and Reformation times. The Artful Roger represents Victorian and Edwardian periods.

But he also provides music from 50s and 60s as a pub entertainer for all occasions. His own compositions are rooted in tradition but matched with a modern folk rock style.

Whatever your requirement Roger will guarantee a successful event. Use the Bookings tab at the top of the page to check on availability and cost.
