The Thistle, the Shamrock, and the Rose will be the theme of a special concert to be held on Saturday, June 16th at 3:00 p.m. at the Little Log Church and Museum in Yachats, an event that recalls the renaissance experiences of 16th to 18th century Scotland, Ireland, and England, featuring works by O’Carolan, Playford, Gow, Jenkins and others played on harpsicord, viols, violins, traverso, and recorders.
The group’s name Byrdsong Consort refers to William Byrd, an English composer of the renaissance. The musicians are Michael Bardossi, Alice Barkan, Julia Heydon, Elinora Sears, and Tom Sears, all of Eugene.
This will be the second appearance of Byrdsong Consort at the Little Log Church.
The Little Log Church’s events coordinator Mary Crook says “it’s not often we have a harpsicord imported to Yachats. This is indeed a special occasion.”
The suggested donation is $10 per person. A portion of the proceeds will be given to the Little Log Church and Museum.
The Log Church is located at 328 West Third Street (corner of West Third and Pontiac) in the heart of Yachats.
