Bassist Edgar Meyer is a six-time Grammy Award winner and one of America’s most versatile musicians. He returns to Hodgson Hall for a concert with The Scottish Ensemble, a pioneering, enterprising, and virtuosic string orchestra from Glasgow who perform under Artistic Director Jonathan Morton. Meyer has worked with the group for more than a decade exploring the roots of bluegrass in the music of the British Isles, crafting a repertoire that traces back to the origins of an American art form. The program for this performance features works by Elgar, Bach, Holst, John Adams, as well as a new piece by Meyer commissioned specifically for this tour.
