Hallifax & Jeffrey with Shira Kammen; Fine Knacks
Our January concert will be the Barefoot house band, viol players Peter Hallifax & Julie Jeffrey, with special guest Shira Kammen, violin and viola. They will play a varied program of Elizabethan and Jacobean music, including music by Dowland, Gibbons, Hume, Coperario, Lupo, and more. Some of the music will be written down, and some of it wont.
Hallifax & Jeffrey, who started out as a duo playing late French baroque music, have been developing a repertoire of Elizabethan and Jacobean music for several years now. Along this path, they have played many concerts of this music with larger groups featuring Bay Area icon Shira Kammen, but this is the first time the trio has presented an entire program. It will be a varied and exciting program, since there are so many great fantasies and dances in 3 parts from this period, not to mention the eccentric pieces by Tobias Hume for 3 instruments and limitless dance pieces with divisions. You will recognize a lot of the music, but theres a lot you wont have heard before.
All in the fabulous wooden acoustic of St. Marks Parish Hall. There will, of course, be snax.
