La Tour Baroque Duo brings together Michel Cardin and Tim Blackmore, two outstanding early music performers. They combine their talents to present music from the 17th and 18th centuries for recorder, therbo and harpsichord.
Formed in 2009, La Tour Baroque Duo has performed widely in Canada, France and the USA. They have two CDs to their credit.
Tickets for this concert, at the door, are $20 general admission and students $10. For information please call 542-5300.
Musique Royale also presents The Bee Eaters on July 19, 8 p.m., at the Evergreen Theatre. An exploratory and versatile group, they weave a tapestry of sound all their own, drawing on roots in bluegrass, Celtic, jazz, and old-time traditions. The Bee Eaters feature Tristan Clarridge on cello, Tashina Clarridge on fiddle and Simon Chrisman on the hammer dulcimer.
