Why you should see this show…

Three members of GRAMMY-winning ensemble Apollo’s Fire take us back to the time when the barrier between “classical” and “folk” did not exist yet. Amanda Powell (vocals), Brian Kay (plucked instruments) and Tina Bergmann (hammered dulcimer) lead this jam session, from Scarborough Fayre and Wade in the Water to toe-tapping instrumentals. Be prepared to join in!

Apollo's Fire Bio
Named for the classical god of music, healing and the sun, Apollo’s Fire is a GRAMMY-winning ensemble. The period-instrument orchestra was founded by award-winning harpsichordist and conductor Jeannette Sorrell, and is dedicated to the baroque ideal that music should evoke the various Affekts or passions in the listeners. Apollo’s Fire is a collection of creative artists who share Sorrell’s passion for drama and rhetoric.

Amanda Powell is a pioneering artist in the global movement that breaks down musical walls and creates art outside the boxes of conventional genres. While Amanda enjoys a diverse career that includes baroque, classical, folk, jazz and global music performance, she thrives at the crossroads of genre. At home on the opera stage, in the jazz club and in the national church arena, Amanda creates intense connections with her audiences through her unique style of invitation, expression, and story-telling.

Brian Kay is a modern-day troubadour. He is the first Artistic Leadership Fellow of Apollo’s Fire and in 2019, he won a Grammy Award for his work on their Songs of Orpheus recording with tenor Karim Sulayman. He has performed throughout the world at venues such as the National Concert Hall of Dublin, Belfast Castle (Ireland), Carnegie Hall, and the Kennedy Center. His live radio appearances include NPR, Baltimore’s WYPR, Baltimore’s 98ROCK, Boston’s WGBH, and Cleveland’s WCLV. He has recorded with record labels Avie and Sono Luminus and has appeared on more than 10 album releases which include original, early music, folk, sephardic, chamber and orchestral. He is a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, arranger, traditional and historical music specialist, poet, painter, and avid proponent of meditation. His recent projects include Meditations, an album of original songs in a modern style with a nostalgic flare, Play, Music! a one-man Shakespeare show which combines traditional music and theater (performed live at the Folger Theater in DC), and he was one of three Apollo’s Fire musicians chosen to collaborate with the UKs Early Folk Band.

Tina Bergmann is a fourth generation musician raised in a family who played music in the aural tradition. Performing since age eight and teaching privately and in workshops since age 12, Tina has decades of experience playing music for a wide range of events, including festivals, weddings and corporate events. In solo performance, as a duo with bassist Bryan Thomas, with her string band Hu$hmoney, and with Cleveland’s world-renowned baroque orchestra, Apollo’s Fire, Tina’s expressive musicality and driving rhythm bring the American old time, Celtic, Classical, and world music she plays to life.
