Guts Baroque Duo

A Period Instrument Duo

Guts Baroque

Guts creates welcoming, powerful, un-stuffy experiences of baroque music played on period instruments, bringing you up close and personal with the music and the juicy stories of the composers and performers behind it.

We breathe life into beautiful and unusual music that we love, bringing it from the 17th and 18th centuries to your ears.

Come experience the warmth and immediacy of historically-informed chamber music!


Next Concert:

Guts Baroque is playing in Quietside Chamber Music Festival, at Somesville Meeting House, Mount Desert Island, Maine on Saturday July 9, at 7pm!
