MEDIAEVAL BAEBES

Call in your reservations for our September 15 show with The Mediaeval Baebes to 401-725-9272.

The allure is undeniable... Seven talented, attractive women breathe renewed life into the rich texts of medieval songs and poetry and their hauntingly beautiful music captures the imagination and devotion of modern audiences. They are the Mediaeval Babes and they have performed before enthusiastic audiences in the UK, Canada, Europe, Asia, and the U.S. Sourcing lyrics from mediaeval and romantic texts and setting them to original scores using mediaeval and folk instruments, while singing in an impressive array of obscure and ancient languages, the Baebes offer a beguiling musical beauty and outstanding talent. Yet their music defies any traditional classification and people of all ages, backgrounds and musical tastes have become fans of the Baebes. Originally formed in 1996, the all-female Mediaeval Baebes lineup has evolved over the years and currently consists of musical director Katharine Blake, Marie Findley, Sophia Halberstam, Anna Pool, Josephine Ravenheart, Sophie Ramsay and Kathleen Ross. The Baebes sing in a variety of medieval languages including French, Spanish, English, Italian, Gaelic, and Swedish. Their original music evokes an earlier time, but is accessible to a modern audience as the medieval themes of nature, the life cycle, love and longing are as relevant in 2018 as they were in 1418. Their first album, "Salva Nos," became Virgin Classics' fastest selling debut album. Their 1998 follow-up, "Worldes Blysse," blazed to number one in the Classical charts and their contribution to the BBC production of "The Virgin Queen" resulted in a 2007 Ivor Novello award for best television soundtrack. Their most recent album, “Victoriana,” is a compilation of musical arrangements from their collection which are poems by Victorian writers inspired by the Mediaeval period. The album also features the Emmy-nominated theme tune from the ITV drama, ‘Victoria.’ Don't miss their first return visit in five years!

THE YVES LAMBERT TRIO

Call in your reservations for our September 16 show with The Yves Lambert Trio to 401-725-9272.

Yves Lambert is one of the most influential players in the revival of Quebecois traditional roots music. In 1976 he was one of the founding members of La Bottine Souriante and for 25 years led the band to world renown. The Yves Lambert Trio showcases the unique connection between maturity and youth by creating a new world of poetry and celebration. Yves Lambert’s charisma and talent, coupled with Tommy Gauthier and Olivier Rondeau’s virtuosity and passion, the nuances of their arrangements and their distinctive harmonies make this trio a one-of-a-kind musical experience. By reviving undiscovered songs and adding their own brand of energy, multicultural ambiance and colorful arrangements, there’s really nothing quite like the Yves Lambert Trio!
