ARTEMISIA w/ Tim Macdonald and Jeremy Ward
March 18, 2017 | 8:00 pm-10:00 pm$10
Artemisia is a Chicago-based female vocal trio that highlights the power of the female voice with intimacy of sound and space. Known for “blurring the boundaries between classical and folk,” Artemisia endeavors to bring diversity and accessibility to their programming. Not your typical stand-and-sing ensemble, Artemisia programs typically include a range of visually appealing dramatization that aim to augment their vast repertoire base, including 11th century chant, Tushetian highlander cries, Norwegian war songs, and everything in-between.
Tim Macdonald and Jeremy Ward are a touring Scottish fiddle duo who combine traditional fiddling with historical scholarship to create a “cutting edge” musical experience that has been described as anything from “metal” to “baroque.” Using historical instruments and combining High Baroque compositions with high-energy dance music, their 18th-century Scottish aesthetic brings a fresh perspective to the tradition. In 2015 they toured Scotland, performing, teaching, and jamming at concert halls, schools, and pubs across the country. They were a featured band at the 2015 Chicago Highland Games and regularly perform at folk dances in Chicago.
