Scottish Ensemble with Bassist Edgar Meyer

Part of the Harriman Jewel Series

American star bassist Edgar Meyer was first presented by the Harriman-Jewell Series in 2017 with cellist Yo-Yo Ma and mandolinist Chris Thile. In May 2021, Meyer returned for a solo performance of Bach and bluegrass. For this third Series appearance, Meyer will collaborate with Scottish Ensemble. The Observer U.K. applauded Scottish Ensemble as “a scintillation of ace soloists who combine bracing energy, flexibility and precision, breathing and moving as one.” 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.

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 among others. The six-time Grammy winner has also ventured into jazz with collaborations with Christian McBride.
