Our repertoire is drawn from medieval, renaissance and impressionistic and original sources with a touch of the gothic about it.

Next performance Nursery Tavern 9th October 2019 from 8.30 as part of an evening with musicians who specialize in medieval, renaissance and impressionist music


Lizzie Perring
Voice, Keyboard, Autoharp and accordion drone
I am a singing teacher and performer based in Coventry. I studied singing at the Colchester Institute and much later added to my education at University of Warwick. There have been lots of collaborations in music making and theatrical pieces and many concerts for my pupils. Sarah and I started to work together 3 years ago and in our weekly rehearsals we have explored some of our favourite music to arrange for our unusual musical resources. Dust is building new exciting musical selections into its set and we shall be ready to bring our new numbers out later this year.

Sarah Laughton
Clarinet and Bass Clarinet 
I play saxophone, clarinet, bass clarinet and recorders and I have been in Coventry bands since the mid 1990s including The Pigeons, Mother’s Jam and Superheroes Dream. I now play in The Moonbears and we are currently recording a double album. Music has always been at the centre of things for me - I remember picking up a recorder and reading my first music note when I was 5 years old. I started clarinet lessons at age 11 and taught myself saxophone in my 20s.

Dust has performed at Coventry venues: St. John the Baptist's Church and Chartershoue. Our Last performance was at the Old Windmill pub. 






Has had a wonderful period together rehearsing and performing Baroque music in contemporary arrangements. Arias with obligatos to instrumental solos and duets for all the varied combinations our instruments will allow. We have now wound up our ensemble in order to make room for our other commitments. It has been utterly inspirational to sing with these musicians. The rehearsala have been hugely important in our learning about the music and the other instruments. I have loved this and hope one day to have ac chance to sing some of our repertoire again in another setting. Dust has taken a few of the Baroque items inton our set..THANK YOU TO ADAM, JANE AND ELIZABETH



Is also now wound up. Thanks to everyone who has supported our adventures with Between Us. The repertoire developed in this musical duo remains in a bulging couple of folders awaiting its next outing in another context. THANK YOU TO ADAM, JIM AND CHRIS
