and Scottish Ensemble

This event occurred as part of the 21/22 Hop Presents season. This is an archived view.

The inimitable double bassist teams up with the leading string ensemble for a mix of classical and bluegrass flavors.

21/22 Hop Presents

Meyer pairs his wistful, intricate originality with the Glasgow-based group's astounding technique and flair for crossing genres, styles and periods to make new connections. Together they explore the roots of bluegrass in the music of the British Isles and produce melodies of exquisite harmony. At the Hop, they perform favorites from Bach and Holst from a different perspective. The program also includes pieces newly composed by Meyer himself, who as a composer has carved out a remarkable and unique niche in the musical world. 

Generously supported by the Marion and Frederick B. Whittemore '53, T'54 Distinguished Artist Series Fund, the Kenneth 1952 & Ellen Roman Fund and the Roesch Family Fund.
