Michael H. Gartner
Michael has been an occasional yet valued contributor to Blue Muse Project since 2017, when he joined in for a series of concerts in Florida on the medieval vielle.
Michael has a B.A. in Music as well as a graduate degree in musicology from the University of Leipzig, Germany where he learned to play a variety of shawms, Rauschpfeifen (wind capped shawms), bagpipes, flutes, medieval strings (such as the mandora and the fiddle) and percussion.
Michael is the artistic director for the medieval bagpipe phenomenon known as Wolgemut.
Sources can confirm that he also makes an exceptional cup of coffee.
