Mack Ramsey

Mack Ramsey specializes in the performance of repertoires ranging from the fifteenth to the eighteenth centuries. Equally at home on a number of different wind instruments, he has been especially fascinated with the role of the municipal and court wind bands of the sixteenth century and the special skills and performance practices that help us interpret this music. Mack performs on bass sackbut with the seventeenth-century ensemble Spiritus Collective in New York, and is also a founding member of the Boston Shawm and Sackbut Ensemble and the New England Waites. He often appears with other wind bands and orchestras such as Piffaro, The Whole Noyse, Les Sonneurs de Montreal, Concerto Palatino, Apollo’s Fire, Boston Baroque, Concert Royal, and Tafelmusik.
