Seven Times Salt
Thanks to a Grafton Cultural Council grant, Early music band Seven Times Salt kicks off the 2018 Summer Reading Program “Libraries Rock!” with a performance of songs the Bard mentions by name, as well as works by his musical contemporaries. The program beings at 6:15 with dance lesson and includes choice excerpts from his plays read aloud by STS’s finest thespians. Dances from the Elizabethan and Jacobean courts and a saucy ballad or two round out the evening’s festivities!

Free admission, teen/adult. Space is limited and FREE tickets will be made available May 22.

The program takes place at Apple Tree Arts, One Grafton Common in the Great Hall.

Seven Times Salt is a Boston-based early music ensemble specializing in repertoire of the 16th and 17th centuries. Praised for creative programming and an “impeccably balanced sound,” STS has performed since 2003 at venues throughout New England including Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts, The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Plimoth Plantation, the New England Folk Festival, WGBH radio, and many others. We have also researched and presented original programs for the Amherst, Bloomington, and Boston Early Music Festivals (Fringe), the Society For Historically Informed Performance, and our own self-produced concert series. We delight in blurring the lines between “art music” and folk tunes, and feel at ease performing in the concert hall, the dance hall, or the beer hall!

Seven Times Salt is:

Karen Burciaga – violin & treble viol
Daniel Meyers – recorders, flute & percussion
Josh Schreiber Shalem – bass viol
Matthew Wright – lute

with special guests:
Michael Barrett – tenor & recorder
Barbara Hill – mezzosoprano
