Our Own Little Medieval Folk Band
"The Left Bank" and "Naturalist for You" are forming a little medieval/folk band. We'll rehearse every Monday night at 7:30pm at different musicians' homes. If you're interested in joining, please RSVP and we'll send you the exact location before each rehearsal. What kind of music do we like? Medieval, Renaissance, Celtic, folk, experimental--a mix. We're also interested in combining music and nature--playing on branches, stones, creating our own sounds, etc. Instruments we are looking for: guitars, lutes, banjos, harps, flutes, tin whistles, viola de gambas, violins, fiddles, mandolins, tambourines, other medieval instruments, percussions and winds, harpsichord, piano, troubadour-type singers.... You don't have to be an expert musician to join, you just need a good ear and basic music/chord reading skills. Our band includes Joel (mandolin, fiddle), Helene (flutes, recorders, harmonica, guitar), Kirk (that guy can play anything) and Jared (guitar, studio recording). Here are a few examples of music we enjoy (click on titles):
Lamento di Tristan e Rotta
Helene and Herbert's duet at the Tower of Songs
Kirk plays the tin whistle in Barker Valley.
