Grant Herreid is a versatile musician/director/teacher on the early music scene. As a multi-instrumentalist and singer he performs frequently with Hesperus, Piffaro, My Lord Chamberland’s Consort and the Folger Consort, and New York City Opera, and this year he will make his debut with Tafelmusik and the Newbury Consort. A noted early music educator, Grant conducts classes in Renaissance music and 17th century song at Mannes College of Music in New York, and directs the New York Continuo Collective. He has created and directed several theatrical early music shows, but mostly he devotes his time to exploring the esoteric unwritten traditions of early music with the groups Ex Umbris and Visceral Reaction. He has recorded for Archiv, Dorian, Lyrichord, Musical Heritage Society, Newport Classics and others.
