Time Traveling With Musical Instruments

San Francisco Early Music Society

It's not a viola, but it's not a cello, either. 

The Viola da Gamba is a stringed instrument that looks like both of the above, but rests between the knees.  The organization Musica Matrix works to bring musical history to life. 

This week MM brings in Hallifax and Jeffrey, who play Renaissance and medieval music. 

They bring the sounds to our studio in a preview of a concert coming to the Ashland Springs Hotel on Saturday.
