Ludovico’s Band

Ludovico’s Band  is one of Australia’s most dynamic baroque bands. Taking its name from the influential 16th century Spanish harpist, Ludovico, the band is acclaimed for its performances of music from the 16th to the 18th centuries, including the great works from the Italian and Spanish baroque.

Formed in 2002, the ensemble emerged from the desire to create a predominately plucked basso continuo band, while highlighting the solo repertoire of early plucked instruments. Led by Marshall McGuire (harp) and Tommie Andersson (theorbo/lute), it includes Ruth Wilkinson and Samantha Cohen.
