It’s how long it took master craftsman Greg Bover to build a harpsichord for his equally talented wife Frances Fitch, who plays it magnificently in this video. Frances & Greg are the gimmesound artists of the week and all week long we’ll have videos featuring Frances, Greg and this extraordinary instrument.
Next Tuesday, May 15, you can see Frances play this masterpiece live at Shalin Liu — and Greg will talk about the process of building it over the past 25 years. Just in case you’re not convinced it’s where you want to be next Tuesday, think about this: Shalin Liu was built specifically for instruments like this. No mics, no amps, just perfect acoustics. This could be your only chance EVER to hear a harpsichord of this quality, played by a master in an acoustically perfect room. Oh, and it’s FREE.
Since yesterday’s post we’ve added several new shows. Cape Ann’s music scene is just exploding. Click here and see what we mean.
