THE NEXT CONCERT AT MUNGO PARK
Hold the date for the sublime Evergreen Ensemble - Sunday 13 October at 3.00pm
We have been fans of the wonderful Geelong based fiddler Shane Lestideau for some years and were lucky enough to see her earlier this year with Evergreen at the Daylesford Convent and at the National Folk Festival, where she was the National Library Folk Fellow of 2019. Shane is touring with Evergreen in the spring, and has held a spot for our group - here's what she says about the show:
EVERGREEN ENSEMBLE present
CURIOUS BY NATURE 1: Baroque Birds & Beasts
Shane Lestideau: baroque violin, violin d’amore, direction |Ben Dollman: baroque violin/viola | Natasha Kraemer: baroque cello | Nick Pollock: baroque guitar/ theorbo
Baroque Birds and Beasts is a musical stroll past a farm yard, a detour by the sea, ending up at a gallop through the bird-filled glades of a European forest. Baroque and folk music styles find common ground in these beautiful and entertaining pieces from the 18th century. Vivaldi and Bieber brush shoulders with Scottish composers such as James Oswald and Robert Bremner all offering a musical description of a bird or animal. The music will be made possible thanks to the 26 sheep-gut strings on the period instruments!; baroque violins and cello, and the ‘giraffe of the string family’, the Theorbo!
