About the artists
John and Sondra themselves are versatile "Renaissance people," acknowledged not only as skilled performers of historic music on a myriad of instruments, but also as storytellers, musicologists, teachers, composers, instrument builders and recording artists. Making their home in Marcellus, John and Sondra have traveled widely in musical research and maintain a busy schedule of concerts and workshops at schools and colleges, historic sites, and Renaissance and living history festivals.
