Purcell in a Pub

I have been thinking about this very idea for the last month or so. Not that it’s an original idea. Classical musicians have taken to the bars (for music making!) all along. Cellist Matt Haimovitz made headlines for taking Bach into bars a few years ago. I heard him in Greensboro playing solo cello under a disco ball in a packed bar. I’ve been thinking lately about making the rounds (pun alert) with Baroque instruments. I’ll keep you posted. Meanwhile, check out this Guardian article about the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment’s “Pub Crawl”.

PS – Matt Haimovitz’s website has a nice streaming music player – you can listen to his recordings non-stop!
