SUNDAY PICK | Folk Baroque: String fusion at the Baroque Room


I was nonplussed at the Portland Cello Project, but just to prove that I don’t hate the entire concept of classical fusion, I’m going to go ahead and give a shout-out to Folk Baroque, an ensemble who explore the full range of the violin/fiddle repertoire. Folk and classical music have been elegantly wed many a time, from Dvořák’s New World symphony to the stylings of Minnesota’s own Orange Mighty Trio, and Folk Baroque’s May 27 performance at the Baroque Room looks likely to please a varied crowd.
