Over the course of his performing and recording career, John Bullard has invited audiences to share in a transformative revelation: to experience the artistic marriage of banjo and classical music. "Absolutely enchanting" writes critic Graham Rickson of the UK-based The Arts Desk. "A musical education and experience that broke genre barriers," noted Morgan Morrison, program director for the performance space Barns of Rose Hill. With qualities evocative of harpsichord and lute, the banjo makes a natural place for itself, in particular, within the works of Bach and other composers of the Baroque—and Bullard has established a strong repertoire in the music of that period. Yet he continues, as well, to expand the banjo's classical reach, with a growing focus on new commissioned work. Bullard will be joined by Markus Compton on W&L's Watson French double harpsichord.
