Gerald Trimble and Jamboroque

Gerald Trimble, viola da gamba innovator and Kansas City native, is the primary exponent of a new style of playing an ancient instrument. His visionary and virtuosic playing combines Celtic, Eastern and Early Music influences with modern techniques and improvisational skills that span several centuries – from Baroque to jazz – seamlessly uniting the entire continuum. With roots in late 15th century Moorish Spain, the viola da gamba was played throughout Europe until the later 18th century. Since the end of the 19th century, it has enjoyed a revival which continues to grow in popularity. Nevertheless, the viola da gamba remains, despite some experimentation and a handful of modern compositions, a predominantly historical instrument for performing period music from written sources.
