Bromka, Sondra & John The Tale of Tristan & Iseult: An Arthurian Legend Literature- Other,
Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
This most famous of all classic love stories was originally set in Celtic antiquity, and an important component of the Arthurian legends. In the 12th century, the tale was already 600 years old when it captured the imagination of Medieval France’s famous storyteller-poet-musicians, the troubadours. The powerful story continued its long journey through the ages... inspiring many works in turn, including Shakespeare (Romeo & Juliet). Bells & Motley present a telling that is authentic, yet lively, accessible, highly charged, and mysterious - full of all of the original symbolism, intrigue, and purpose. In ancient bardic style, it features a simple setting, rich language, and complex emotions evoked through the power of music. Rare historic instruments include the Medieval keyed fiddle, low-voiced recorders, ancient gut-strung bray harp, and Celtic harp. Musical selections include the same historic pieces that were part of Medieval tellings, as inspired by this enduring tale.
$351- $500

Combine the soothing tones of three part vocal harmony with the delicate arpeggios of the Irish harp, calming flow of breath through the wooden flute and penny whistle, and the steady pulse of bodhran (Irish drum) and guitar to make this trio of women, “Cuisle Mo Chroí” (say Cushla Ma Chree) one of the premier folk groups in the Rochester NY area. The three, Patricia Carey, Mary Lester, and Cathy McGrath, have appeared nine times in the Rochester Irish Festival, have opened for “Cherish the Ladies”, and are often found at Irish music sessions in the area. Expect to hear songs (some in the Irish language) that evoke images of Ireland, Scotland, castles, immigration, romance, as well as songs your grandmother taught you on St. Patrick’s Day, and a few lively tunes - reels, jigs, planxties and polkas. This program has been presented for the Irish American Cultural Institute and for many community concerts and libraries.
