217 Bud Roach 4in Bud Roach, Tenor and Baroque guitar

Much of the secular vocal repertoire in the early 17th century was published with "alfabeto" symbols, for accompaniment on the Spanish guitar. This popular genre of music was often performed by singers who would have sung to their own accompaniment. Accompanying himself on the baroque guitar, tenor Bud Roach brings to life the beautiful melodies and lively dance rhythms of Grandi, Sances, Monteverdi, and others.

Midtown Concerts sponsors lunchtime performances of music of the 18th century and earlier for anyone seeking a respite from the midtown hustle and bustle. Ensembles are chosen by a jury of early-music specialists from the metropolitan area.
