Black Tulip Ensemble offers a unique program highlighting music written by women composers from the 1700s. Francesca Caccini, Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre, Isabella Leonarda, and Barbara Strozzi may not be household names … but once you hear their music you’ll remember them for a long time. Join newlyweds—fiddler Katie Grennan, and accordionist John Williams—for a concert that blends traditional and contemporary Irish melodies with beloved Christmas classics. Also on board are harpist Lauren Hayes, and vocalists Nora Byrd and Liam Kantor. The evening will feature stunning, heartfelt pieces composed by Turlough O’Carolan (the blind Irish harper from the 1600s), spirited jigs and reels, and many of those holiday songs that you know and love. Get ready to clap, dance, and sing along!
Unique to this program is the fact that musicians Josefien and Joel are also visual artists. They will share their drawings and paintings with you at this event alongside their music!
