In the Renaissance, the lute was known as the “Prince of Instruments,” valued for its expressiveness. Dynamics and tone color were literally at the fingertips, and the variety of sounds produced on the lute were colorful and bold. In this concert you’ll hear GRAMMY-nominated lutenist Ronn McFarlane perform a combination of Renaissance and Baroque music, his own arrangements of Scottish and Irish tunes from the 17th and 18th centuries, and his own eclectic, Celtic- and Americana-inspired, original lute music. McFarlane imagines a future for the lute while building on its magnificent past.
