Alkemie & Friends launch postponed
Due to concerns regarding Covid-19 in New York, we have decided to postpone our inaugural Alkemie & Friends concert to a later date. We hope you will join us for this in the future! Currently, all future scheduled concerts are still scheduled to happen as planned.
With the support of Early Music America, Alkemie looks forward to inaugurating a NYC-based initiative dubbed "Alkemie and Friends," a series of informal, musically experimental, and multi-sensory concerts in non-traditional NYC concert settings.
Our first concert, “Blood, Booze, and Betrayal” will take place at 1 Rivington, the pop-up venue of Metropolis Ensemble on the lower east side of Manhattan. Come for the murder ballads and stay for the drinking songs in this program featuring the extremely broken (i.e. non-sonically homogeneous) consort of Sian Ricketts (douçaine, recorders, voice), Tracy Cowart (electric bray harp, percussion, voice) of Alkemie alongside Celtic specialist Fiona Gillespie (whistle, voice) and composer Paul Holmes Morton (banjo, theorbo, lute) of folk band Chivalrous Crickets and musical maverick Loren Ludwig of Acronym.
