The Benslow 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 help with lute songs by Robert Jones and John Dowland, broken consorts and four-voice ayres with lutes. There will be ensemble and solo work, with some individual teaching offered where appropriate and possible. 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 Alex McCartney’s concert on Friday 16 March and we are again offering the opportunity to extend the experience with an optional early arrival.
