American star bassist Edgar Meyer returns to the Harriman-Jewell Series for a concert with the acclaimed Scottish Ensemble. Based in Glasgow, the string ensemble has worked with Edgar Meyer for more than a decade exploring the roots of bluegrass in the music of the British Isles, and crafting a program that traces back to the origins of an American art form. The Observer U.K. has praised the Ensemble as “a scintillation of ace soloists who combine bracing energy, flexibility and precision, breathing and moving as one.”
Edgar Meyer is one of America’s most versatile musicians. Growing up in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, Meyer absorbed the great bluegrass tradition. As a composer, Meyer has written music for Emanuel Ax, Yo-Yo Ma, and Hilary Hahn. The six-time Grammy winner has also ventured into jazz with collaborations with Christian McBride.
