Yes, the guy in the picture with the cool dreads is Robert Ballard, my composer ancestor! He had the best patron ever, King Louis XIII of France.

His music survived in printed form, I have a copy of it. It is baroque music, so it is very rigid and limited compared to modern music. It was meant to accompany a troupe of singers and dancers as they performed in the royal court in 17th century France. I wonder how Robert would like my music?
