Jamie Akers will pay us a much welcome visit, performing some lute music. Jamie is one of the leading younger lute players on the scene today. His recent album of 19th-century guitar music associated with Scotland is a “must have”. See his website for more information: http://jamieakers.com
Gordon Ferries has also promised us a mini recital, extracted from his “mostly Mertz” program. Mertz was one of the greatest of the post-Sor/Giuliani period guitarists. This should be a fascinating recital.
And Rob MacKillop will be playing some Romantic guitar music which was recently found in a flea market in Valencia!
Plus there will be the contribution of regular members – always worth hearing.
Visitors and guests are most welcome. £1 fee to cover heating.
time: 1pm to around 4pm
The venue is Chris Elmes’s place – 1F1, 25 Haddington Place, EH7 4AF (the left side of Leith Walk between Annandale St and MacDonald Rd). Parking is unrestricted off Leith Walk on weekends; MacDonald Road or Hopetoun Crescent is the best area.
