Unique Concert Event Tracing Tennessee's Musical Roots

Music City Baroque is breaking new ground in the world of Early Music. A unique program of music from Europe and colonial US willl be presented at Monday night, April 16 at 7:30 in the Loveless Barn.

Did you know that Benjamin Franklin wrote a string quartet? You can hear it played live tonight, along with marches, reels, and dance music played on replicas of instruments from the 18th and 19th centuries. One guitar being used is not a replica, it's the real thing - an 1880's Martin parlor guitar, featured on a number of pieces.

Music isn't the only feature of this program, as there will be dancers and a multi-media presentation narrated by WPLN personality Will Griffin. Grammy-nominated fiddler Tammy Rogers King was a key figure in putting the program together and will be featured prominently in the performance.

To learn more about this program, visit Art Now Nashville , Music City Baroque on Facebook, and Evie's Event of the Day.

Here's a short video from the dress rehearsal.
