Medievalist and musician Benjamin Bagby with his six-string harp bewitches audiences in his “double tour de force of scholarly excavation and artistic dynamism” (San Francisco Chronicle), commissioned by Utrecht Early Music Festival and Lincoln Center. 

His chants and songs carry clear echoes of Gaelic music, sea shanties, Appalachian hill tunes and bluegrass numbers, Eastern ritual chants and prayer calls. The talking blues is in there too; at times, Bagby's "Beowulf" doesn't seem that far from early Bob Dylan.” – San Jose Mercury News
