“Medieval Europe was a magical world of miracle and mystery, animated by strings and drums from the Middle East and flutes and horns from the north. Though far from the mainstream today, the spirit of that music is still alive and dressed in contemporary trappings by musicians such as Daniel Crommie and his mates in the Saturnalia Trio, another brilliant facet of Portland’s rich and varied music scene. The sounds of a flute, mandolin and balalaika mingle in pleasing world-folk harmonies. ”
