Black Tulip Catches “Tulipmania” Returning to the Early Music at the Byron Colby Barn Series

Black Tulip returns to the Barn with a program focusing on music, art, FOOD, and politics of the Dutch Golden Age, the period in the 17th century when the Low Countries reached the zenith of its economic, political and military power. An open society focused on trade, it fostered development in the areas of painting and philosophy, and had a voracious appetite for good music, both home-grown and foreign. Tulipmania was a period in the Dutch Golden Age during which contract prices for bulbs of the recently introduced tulip reached extraordinarily high levels and then suddenly collapsed.
