The Pilgrims and other European settlers brought their music with them to the new land, and we can follow a trail of music, books, and instruments from the 17th century onward. By the 18th century, we can see that colonial libraries contained music for viola da gamba, Baroque guitar, and English guitar. Advertisements in periodicals from that time show what sheet music and instruments were for sale. Finally, composers arrived on the scene, including the guitarist Barthélemy Trille Labarre, who fled the French revolution to settle in Boston, where he taught, conducted, and composed. These composers’ music reflects their national origins, and it was very much enjoyed by musicians and audiences on this side of the Atlantic. Duo Maresienne will perform a selection of dance music, variations, sonatas, and fantasies by some familiar composers, such as J.C. Bach and Christopher Simpson, and some probably unfamiliar ones, such as Vidal, Trille Labarre, and Hewitt. There will be a lovely set of guitar pieces by the Englishwoman Anne Ford, a talented musician who played both English guitar and viola da gamba.

Olav Chris Henriksen and Carol Lewis have performed and recorded with many ensembles in the United States and abroad, including Boston Camerata, Ensemble Chaconne, Emmanuel Music, Capella Clausura, Capriccio Stravagante, Hespèrion and others. They specialize in a range of music for bowed and plucked instruments from the 15th to the 18th centuries.
