Our special guest artist for April will be James Bishop-Edwards playing a program of his own arrangements. Guest performances generally start between 7:30 and 7:45, and audience members are asked to “pass the hat” to help support the artists. Mark you calendars for these special events.
James Bishop-Edwards will be performing with the Jefferson Baroque Orchestra on March 5th. Steve Berman and Roma Spring will be playing as well:
Citterns and bandoras are not the most often heard instruments in our showcase concerts, but this season we have them! Together with lutes, violin, recorder and bass viol, you’ll hear traditional ballads and dances set for this lively combination of early music instruments. With music from the Cambridge Consort Books compiled by Matthew Holmes in 1588, this concert features the talents of James Bishop-Edwards (lute, cittern), David Rogers (lute, cittern), Steve Berman (bandora), Roma Sprung (gamba), Aaron Moffat (violin) and Pat O’Scannell (recorder). Sunday, March 5, 2017 at 3 PM, First Congregational Church (UCC), 717 Siskiyou Boulevard, Ashland. Visit jeffersonbaroque.org/JBO-
