Amherst Early Music Festival

I’ve just come home from a wonderful week of playing, teaching, beach jams and lobster rolls at the magical Amherst Early Music Festival in New London, CT. The focus this year was English music, with particular attention paid to musical life in Oxford in the 16th and 17th centuries. Mary Springfels gave a brilliant lecture and we played everything from broken consorts to country cries. It was a thrilling, educational and inspiring week.
