Celtic Ensemble to Perform at Evergreen House

Ensemble Galilei will perform Irish, Scottish and original Celtic folk music on ancient instruments at 8 p.m. on Friday, March 28, in the Evergreen Carriage House, 4545 N. Charles St., as part of the 2002-2003 Evergreen Concert Series.

The ensemble takes its name and inspiration from the life of composer Vincenzo Galilei, whose influence, some 400 years ago, helped restore a vital element of passion to the music of the day. Including both classically trained and folk-trained musicians, the ensemble features Liz Knowles, fiddle; Deborah Nuse, Scottish small pipes and fiddle; Sue Richards, Celtic harp; Carolyn Anderson Surrick, viola da gamba, Kathryn Montoya, oboe; and guest artist Steve Bloom, percussion. Their performance will include baroque interpretations of 18th-century Irish airs, reels and jigs, Welsh melodies, Galician waltzes and Breton dance tunes.

The Evergreen Concert Series is sponsored by the Evergreen House Foundation in honor of its founder, Alice Warder Garrett, who lived at Evergreen House from 1920 to 1952. Garrett was a patron of the arts who supported a resident string quartet each spring and fall from 1928 to 1942 to entertain guests at Evergreen and at the Garretts' home in Italy.

Admission to the concert is $15 per person and includes a meet-the-artists reception after the performance. Evergreen's fellows, contributors and patrons are admitted free with one guest. For reservations and information, call 410-516-0341 or visit www.jhu.edu/historichouses.
