Chivalrous Crickets Concert
July 9 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$30 – $35
(RESCHEDULED from February 5)
Join us for an evening exploring the roots, branches, and crossroads of Celtic, English, and American folk music with the Chivalrous Crickets! A special opportunity to learn more about the instruments, songs, and more will be a part of the night with a Q&A with the band immediately following their performance.
Formed in 2018, the east coast-based American group brings their backgrounds in traditional Irish, English, Appalachian, popular, and early Classical (Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque) music to the stage and the studio in an exhilarating and thrumming blend of instrumental timbers, lavish vocal harmonies, and rich history treated with creative twists. The Crickets specialize in using historical and orchestral instruments, as well as the usual suspects, in their arrangements. Some of these include various lutes, a Renaissance bassoon called a dulcian, the baroque guitar, and Medieval pipes. Watch a recent performance HERE.
