Close Encounters With Music presents “Celtic Baroque Band Makaris – A Bach Family Concert with an Irish Twist”

March 17 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm EDT

$28 – $52

In his dance suites, J.S. Bach ventures into Spanish sarabandes, French bourrées, and British gigues. He and family members delighted in arranging Celtic and Scottish folk music. They will be joined by Beethoven and Haydn who also forayed into Irish folk music with their own arrangements. Makaris formed in 2018 to explore the broad musical heritage of Scotland and the following year released its disc Wisps in the Dell, to critical international acclaim (“Absolutely wonderful…one of the very best releases of 2019 – MusicWeb International). A makar (pl. makaris) was a royal court troubadour of medieval Scotland and the program provides a lush sampling from the ensemble’s collection.

“You can’t help but feel like you’ve suddenly traveled back in time and are enjoying a tankard of old Scottish ale inside a seedy establishment.” – Classical Music Sentinel
