The Founder of the Feast

November 6 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm EST


We mark Bonfire Night with a musical journey through autumn in 17th-century England. As the nights grew longer, farmers brought in their harvest and turned their thoughts towards the many delights of Fall. Our program features a warming mix of songs about Martinmas and Guy Fawkes, autumnal tunes by Baldwin, Peerson, and Byrd, and high-spirited selections from Henry VIII’s music book, all performed on period instruments. You’ll also enjoy (and even sing along with) rousing ballads of hunting, harvest, and beer!

Ari Nieh, bass-baritone
Karen Burciaga, violin, guitar
Dan Meyers, recorders, bagpipes, percussion
Josh Schreiber, bass viol
Matthew Wright, lute, bandora
