The Kitchen Musician®



Sara and Maynard Johnson perform as a duo,

or with fiddler Michael Thompson as

The Rogue's Consort.

Rogue's Consort performs historic music and
popular music of the olden times with
hammered dulcimer, fiddle, violincello, recorders, flageolets, and kits.

And, along with the popular dance tunes and airs,

the occasional 18th Century drinking song or

an 18th Century gentlemen's club song, or

a song from the 18th Century ballad opera stage.
