LuteFest at Benslow

Recorder players also welcome

Benslow Music, Benslow Lane, Hitchin, Hertfordshire


from £225 (for 2-night option)

Our annual Lutefest, organised in association with the Lute Society, gives lutenists of all standards the opportunity to explore the treasures of the lute and lute-in ensemble repertoire. We also welcome singers, renaissance flautists, recorder players and viols to enjoy non-stop lute songs (this year’s ayre composer: Michael Cavendish, and of course Dowland), broken consorts and four-voice ayres with lutes. There will be ensemble and solo work, and individual teaching is offered. Needless to say we can also more or less guarantee some ad hoc late night madrigal singing in the bar. Included in the course fee is a ticket to Nigel North and Michal Gondko’s recital on Friday 6 March and we are again offering the opportunity to extend the experience with an optional early arrival.
