Wayward Sisters to perform at Byron Colby Barn
 
GRAYSLAKE— Did you resolve to enjoy life more in 2013? Join Wayward Sisters at 4 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 13 for “A Restless Heart: Music of Exiles, Émigrés, and Nomads” at the Byron Colby Barn in Grayslake.
   
We travel for love, for money, for refuge, for learning, for joy. Baroque composers were no different. A seventeenth-century music maker couldn't hop on a jet or board a train, but nonetheless, many of the most important composers of the day were on the move. Biagio Marini, Francesco Geminiani, James Oswald, Georg Muffat, and even Johann Sebastian Bach undertook journeys of months, years, or decades. Wayward Sisters embarks on an exploration of who we become when we live as strangers in a strange land.  
 
“Wayward Sisters” refers to Henry Purcell’s vivid conjuring of Shakespeare’s witches as well as members’ scattered lives and continuing commitment to making music together.  Wayward Sisters (Beth Wenstrom, baroque violin; Anne Timberlake, recorders; Anna Steinhoff, baroque cello; and John Lenti, theorbo and guitar) have inspired audiences and achieved critical acclaim on their own journeys across the United States.  
 
Incredible music and architectural beauty combine to create a delightful and unique concert experience at the 110 year old Byron Colby Barn. Admission is $18 for adults, and is available at the door only (cash or check). To inspire early appreciation for the arts, children under 16 are admitted free of charge. Performances at the Byron Colby Barn are BYOB, so feel free to bring a bottle of wine to share with friends.
 
The Byron Colby Barn is located at 1561 Jones Point Road in Grayslake, inside the Prairie Crossing conservation community. From I-94, exit Route 120 west, turn south at Route 45, then right at Jones Point Road. Ample free parking is located adjacent to the Barn.  Information about all upcoming events at the Byron Colby Barn is at www.prairiecrossing.com/bcbarn.
