On their 2020 album, Fermi’s Paradox, these two world-class instrumentalists play an exhilaratingly rich and diverse repertoire that binds together traditional Irish, English and Swedish music with pieces by J.S. Bach, John Dowland, Duane Allman and the performers themselves. In the fall of 2021 they are releasing a new holiday album, A Star in the East, featuring reimagined traditional Christmas favorites alongside new works by both McFarlane and Surrick.

Virtuoso David Jacques, the Baroque and Romantic guitar
Both as soloist and as a guest of numerous orchestras and early-music ensembles, David Jacques has appeared in more than 3,500 performances in 35 countries and on more than 50 recordings.  Amazing!  Notably, three of his CDs have won the Conseil Québécois de la Musique’s Prix Opus.  He also has one of the most impressive collections of historic guitars of which I’m aware (several highlighted on his last two exciting CDs, Histoires de Guitares).  David will close our season on April 23, 2022 with a program of Baroque and Romantic music delivered using original guitars by Voboam (built in the 1660s) and Torres (1887)!  Wow.
