Talisman MedievalBreathing Life into Medieval Icons.

Join Talisman Medieval for a diverse journey through medieval sound and place. Inspired by images of musicians from manuscripts, you'll hear harps, citole, hurdy gurdy, medieval bagpipes, voices and more. We’ll perform evocative music from 12th to 15th centuries, as well as medieval and fantasy-inspired compositions by David Yardley.

Performing in several professional concert series in NYC, Talisman Medieval brings together multi-talented singer/instrumentalists to present varied and imaginative programs of music from far-off times and places.
