Jonathan Gilbert


Jonathan Gilbert's wooden flute dates from the 1830s: it's the Irish flute's 19th-century ancestor!  With a background in historical music and years of experience locally as a dance musician, he can also switch to mandolin or fiddle, whistle or recorder, guitar, bass, or bodhrán—and fill out a song with baritone harmony.  He hasn't found an excuse yet to bring his bombarde, lute, or shawm to GHCS, but just wait.
