While northern Italy in the seventeenth century was a patchwork of independent city-states and principalities, all of the South was ruled by Spain. Spanish influence can still be heard in the folk music of southern Italy, which prominently features the Spanish guitar and castanets. Our final program of the season combines the living tradition of folk music from across southern Italy with music by seventeenth-century Neapolitans Andrea Falconieri, Girolamo Montesardo and Simone Coya. We are joined by Italian folk percussionist and singer Fabio Pirozzolo, multi-instrumentalist Dan Meyers, and our favorite Spanish guitar player, Simon Martyn-Ellis.
Our final concert of the 20182019 season will be our most exciting yet. Please help us to finish the year in style!
