Musique Pour le Dauphin – French baroque music from the first decade and a half of the 18th century. Their programs have being lauded for their “taste and ingenuity” (Boston Musical Intelligencer_), their playing as “seamless” (American Recorder_) and “interplay … hard to resist” (Boston Musical Intelligencer_), and their concerts “animated” by “sheer warmth and creative spirit” (_Boston Musical Intelligencer) and “stimulating [of] the palate and the conversation” (American Recorder).   


Wednesday, July 31, 2013: Katie McNally and Eric McDonald *

Fiddler Katie McNally and guitarist Eric McDonald offer an evening of traditional music from Scotland. Katie McNally and Eric McDonald seek to functionally push the envelope of traditional music, using original music and modern sensibility to add new color to the familiar style of tunes that have been passed down for generations. While based heavily in the Scottish tradition, their music is infused with influences from two diverse and educated musical backgrounds, where carefully arranged traditional pieces seamlessly give way to original compositions.
