"Hesperus may be the most affable, entertaining purveyors of obscure early repertory on the current concert scene." - San Francisco Examiner

Hesperus presents an unusual, intriguing concert of medieval and Irish music that melds the mystery and restless energy of the Middle Ages with the timeless traditions of Ireland: Irish slow airs and medieval laments, medieval dance tunes and Irish reels. It features the incomparable Scott Reiss on recorders and Irish whistles, Grammy-winning Celtic guitar and bouzouki player Zan McLeod, virtuoso medieval fiddler Tina Chancey, and the ever-remarkable bodhran player, Myron Bretholz. Besides its international popularity, Hesperus has made a real impact on the local community. It has won four WAMMIE Awards and the Star Award for Managerial Excellence from the Arlington Commission for the Arts. Come experience what Dolomiten in Bolzano, Italy claims to be "The most fascinating crossover group in the whole world."
