Barokksolistene: Alehouse Sessions
Posted on: September 25, 2017
Event date: October 12, 2017, 7:30 p.m.

Join Bjarte Eike and Barokksolistene for Alehouse Sessions, an energetic evening of English 17th-century tavern music. This nontraditional concert will give the audience a window into this tumultuous period through Purcell overtures, English sea shanties, and Scandinavian folk songs. These sessions have been hailed as ‘irresistible’ (The Times), ‘superb’ (The Scotsman) and ‘fabulously unrestrained’ (The Guardian), and they have diverted away from the traditional concert model by ‘creating the effect of a late night jamming session’ (BBC Music Magazine). Barokksolistene will be making their Twin Cities debut in a program combining humor, unrivalled virtuosity, and a flare for improvisation.
