Album Notes
Michael Albert has performed as an oboist with the Maine Music Society and the Portland and Bangor Symphony Orchestras and as a violinist and countertenor with Ecclesia and the Portland Early Music Consort. He is currently a soloist with the Schola Cantorum of the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Portland, Maine.

Henry Lebedinsky holds degrees from Bowdoin College and the Longy School of Music, where he earned a Master of Music degree with distinction as a student of Peter Sykes. An active performer on organ, harpsichord, and clavichord, he currently performs with The Wild Rose Ensemble (San Fransisco), Seraphic Fire (Miami), and the trio Tableau.
He also plays bouzouki and mandolin with the groups Nancy Whiskey and the Acme Ceili Band in Charlotte, NC.

Larry Young graduated from Dartmouth College where, majoring in music, he studied violin with Andrew Jennings and Music History with Charles Hamm. He performs a wide variety of repertoire for violin including Colonial American with the duo Poor Richard’s Penny ( and maritime with English folksinger John Roberts and guitarist John Rockwell.

The Beggar Boys also play as a Celtic band with North Carolina singer and flute player Kate Minogue. They’re a bit unusual, though. There may not be too many other Celtic groups with baroque oboe and a countertenor.

Larry writes:
I come from more of a folk music background, while Henry and Michael have rigorous conservatory training. Henry has been composing and fiddling since he was seven and Michael performs effortlessly and expressively on about ten different instruments. I’ve always been interested in learning about history through music. When I was a little kid I took card tables and set up a colonial tavern in my bedroom, served my friends water in beer steins and made them sing sea chantys.
