Benjamin Bagby, voice and harp

Beowulf

Accompanying himself on a six-stringed harp, Benjamin Bagby takes on the role of medieval scop, or “singer of tales,” to relate the Anglo-Saxon poem Beowulf through speech and song. Bagby’s dramatic retelling of Beowulf and the Icelandic Edda, scholarly reconstructed epics from the Middle Ages, is an invaluable gift to the music world. Based in Paris, he teaches at the Sorbonne and also directs Sequentia.
