THE GOLIARDS present authentic medieval music in a lively and entertaining style. We perform on reproductions of actual medieval instruments and sing in the various dialects and languages of the period.
We wear costumes based on the clothing of period musicians, completing the feeling of long ago.
The music is a wide variety of medieval tunes, chiefly from the 13th and 14th centuries. Selections can range from bouncy dances and drinking songs to hauntingly beautiful devotional and art melodies. In the style of medieval musicians, large sections of music are improvised, adding an unforgettable excitement to the songs. The Goliards can play, lead and teach dances to allow the audience to completely experience the music as it was originally presented. We have in the past worked with other performers in poetic and dramatic recitations.
We are available for schools, conventions, weddings, and private events. For upcoming events, booking information, or to join the swelling tide of Goliard fans on the mailing list, call (619) 286-4077 or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
