Eric Miller, Tani Diakite with Andy Ewen and Djam Vivie, and Louka Patenaude and John Christensen

Sat March 11 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Eric Miller presents the intimate and ethereal music for the unaccompanied viola da gamba, an instrument described in the late 18th century as one “with which one forgets the troubles of the day in quiet twilight.” Highlighted are a pair compositions, one by the obscure Parisian Le Sieur de Machy, and the other by Dutch master Johannes Schenk, A classically trained cellist and viola da gambist, Eric is known to Madison as a member of the Wisconsin Baroque Ensemble and has appeared with many of Madison and Milwaukee’s top ensembles.

Tani Diakite with Andy Ewen and Djam Vivie

Tani Diakite is a singer and Kamele N’goni virtuoso from the Wassoulou region of Mali. The Kamele
N’goni is a harp-like instrument crafted from a gourd, goatskin and bamboo. Tani also makes his instruments. Tani’s plaintive singing and deep grooves have made him one of Madison’s most beloved musicians.

Andy Ewen has been a mainstay of the Madison music scene for over three decades. He is best known as the singer-guitarist and songwriter for the Psycho-Blues Rock band, Honor Among Thieves. He and Tani Diakite have been friends and frequent musical collaborators for 15 years.
