Midday on Music II: Celtic Duo Robin Bullock & Sue Richards
Today's edition of Midday on Music continues now with two great musician friends of Midday joining Tom once again in Studio A: They are Robin Bullock, who has appeared as a solo artist and as part of Helicon; and Sue Richards, who has played here previously as a member of Ensemble Galilei. Now, they have teamed up as a duo and released a terrific CD of traditional Celtic music called Highland Ramble. Robin plays guitar, mandolin and cittern, among other traditional string instruments. Sue is a four time National Scottish Harp Champion.
The duo plays two tunes from the Highland Ramble CD: "Loftus Jones" by Irish harper Turlough O'Carolan, and "Farmors Brudpolska," a traditional 19th century Swedish wedding polska.
If you miss them tonight, they’ll be back in Baltimore on December 6th at Govans Presbyterian Church; Robin will be playing a solo all-Bach concert at An Die Musik in Baltimore on November 1st.
