Renaissance music from Scotland, Ireland and England will fill the Little Log Church and Museum in Yachats this Saturday, June 16, in a special concert from Byrdsong Consort.
“The Thistle, the Shamrock and the Rose” will feature music from the 16th to the 18th centuries, including works by O’Carolan, Playford, Gow, Jenkins and others played on harpsicord, viols, violins, traverso and recorders.
“It’s not often we have a harpsicord imported to Yachats,” said events coordinator Mary Crook. “This is indeed a special occasion.”
The group, named in honor of English Renaissance composer William Byrd, includes Michael Bardossi, Alice Barkan, Julia Heydon, Elinora Sears and Tom Sears, all of Eugene.
The concert will begin at 3 pm at 328 West Third Street.
The suggested donation is $10 per person, with a portion of the proceeds benefitting the Little Log Church and Museum.
