The Czar’s Guitars – Early Music Series 2017-2018
4 p.m. Sun., Mar. 25 at the Byron Colby Barn
The unique guitar duo The Czar’s Guitars was founded in 2004 by the well-known lute and guitar virtuoso, John Schneiderman and Oleg Timofeyev, the expert on the Russian seven-string guitar. The musicians joined their forces to revive the legacy of the Russian guitar, the instrument that unlike it’s Western-European cousin is only now gaining the respect and recognition it deserves. Since then, The Czar’s Guitars released 2 CD albums on Sono Luminus, and in 2016 came up with a grand 7-CD Box Set “The Russian Guitar” (Brilliant Classics).
