April 28 and 29, 2018  Ballads and Bards : Songs and Sounds of Shakespeare’s Day and Plays

Tudor London was crowded, malodorous, colorful, and tuneful.  Its soundscape included trumpet calls, raucous wind bands keeping the times of day, and ballads hawked and bawled out by scurrilous ballad-mongers.  Shakespeare and his contemporaries have given us vivid accounts of Elizabethan balladry, which we will recreate – minus fleas and the picking of pockets.  Our songs run the gamut: Tragical, comical, historical, tragical-historical, and tragical-comical-historical-pastoral!  Fearuring  Drew Minter, voice; Shira Kammen, fiddle; Mark Rimple, cittern and voice; and Mary
Springfels, viola da gamba.
