Edgar Meyer and The Scottish Ensemble
April 1, 2022 | 7:30 pm
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 J.S. Bach, Holst, Vaughan Williams, and Pulitzer Prize winner Caroline Shaw, as well as a new piece by Meyer commissioned specifically for this tour.
