ADD:The Sabella Consort is a rare visionary group which has managed to break the barriers between conventional musical genres with virtuoso performances on guitar, mandolin, woodwinds, keyboards, and a variety of other instruments. "[Their] music comes off especially clean and natural. . .The total effect seemed to cut across both time and space" (The Los Angeles Times). The Consort's blending of jazz compositions, lively Irish reels, and a selection of enticing medieval melodies, as well as their musical mastery, is often referred to as "Renaissance Jazz." Infusing their music with improvisation, wit, and warmth, the Sabella Consort has been delighting international audiences of all ages for over a decade.
