Cygnus Ensemble

Critically acclaimed Cygnus was founded in 1985 by guitarist and composer William Anderson. The group's core instrumental formation consists of winds and strings in pairs, as well as a pair of plucked string players who, together, cover classical and electric guitars, theorbo (a giant Baroque lute), mandolin, and tenor banjo. The instrumentation has roots in the Elizabethan "broken consort" (combining instruments from different families), but Cygnus moves freely from the Baroque sound world into newgrass, electronica, and world music.
