Profile Information

About me:
I am a performer (especially with my wife, Maggi-- a soprano) specializing in 19th and 20th century American music --though I do play earlier and more recent music as well.

I play guitar, minstrel and other early banjos, mandolin, mandocello, Renaissance lute, cittern, and English guitar.

I am a professor in the music theory department of the Boston Conservatory.

Perhaps this is a better link. Zach can look away.

I realised just a few seconds after sending my last message that we do indeed know each other. So many cyber friends!

Good to hear you have been improvising preludes in concerts, and I look forward to your comments.

I don't know Jim. I believe it is possible to hear programmes previously broadcast provided you have some software downloadable from BBC. I haven't much spare time for investigations of this kind and I don't listen to my own broadcasts. It is a bit like reading your own letters. I will see if I can find a recording.
I know 'Time Team' broadcast repeats frequently and Channel 4 should be able to tell you when they are scheduled. The programme about the lyre was called 'The King of Bling'; daft title.
Other progs you might like are 'Music's missing link' and 'An Organistrum for Santiago'.

Hello Jim.
You are mistaken, but understandably. The lyre is one I made for the'Time Team' programme base don the evidence turned up in the Prittlewell dig in 2004. It resembles the Sutton Hoo lyre in many ways. You can also hear my own programme called the Saxon Lyre broadcast on BBC Radio 4 about three years ago.
Busy right now but will write more anon.

Hi Jim,

Do we know each other from the ning banjo website? I play a fretless banjo, some Briggs, Converse stuff. Well, to be more accurate, I am looking onto it. I also play 19thC guitar. Recorded a piece by Fodden once. Interesting repertoire. I hope you can fill us in on early American guitar music.
I even play the 'English guitar' - my, how similar we are!

Nice to see you here.
