To Drive the Cold Winter Away
Tim Macdonald & Jeremy Ward present an evening of music, song, and poetry created for cold winters' nights long ago. Poetic meditations on snow, protest ballads of cold winds, rousing reels, and a set of breathtaking fiddle variations on Greensleeves keeps the fires of 18th-century Scotland burning right into our own winter's nights.
Tim Macdonald & Jeremy Ward are a touring Scottish fiddle duo who combine traditional fiddling with historical scholarship to create a musical experience that has been described as everything from "cutting-edge" and "metal" to "classic" and "baroque". Using period instruments and mixing High Baroque chamber music with high-energy dance tunes, their music is at times soulful and at times electrifying, but always moving.
