Skye Consort

Skye Consort was formed in 1999 and since then has toured and participated in chamber music festivals across eastern Canada. The group's original goal was to bring an art-music aesthetic to the folk genre, but for this project the pendulum has swung the other way, and the musicians give art music and some old folk music a fully modern treatment. Skye Consort plays this collection of songs and dances without regard for historical or musicological constraints, instead bringing the music to life for modern ears. These are festive songs played festively, love songs played romantically, and drinking songs played drunkenly.
