For its final program of the season, Folger Consort, the early music ensemble in residence at Folger Shakespeare Library, presents Highland Ayres, a selection of Scottish and Continental music associated with Scotland from the 13th to the late 18th centuries. The program is on stage April 18-20, 2008, and will include a number of works for traditional Scottish instruments -- harp, fiddle, and bagpipes -- as well as other period instruments in styles ranging from traditional to courtly. Classical WETA's Midday Music Host Marilyn Cooley spoke with the Folger Consort's Robert Eisenstein about the program.
