All Manner of Minstrelrye
Special Event | York Medical Society Rooms
Wednesday 27 November 2013 - 14:00 until 16:00
As a pre-Christmas event, Tim Bayley and John Peel of the York Waits will present an hour-long introduction to the instruments, the music and the musicians of mediaeval and Tudor Yorkshire. They will demonstrate by playing some of the forgotten instruments of five hundred years ago; the shawm, the cittern, the tabor, the crumhorn and many others to give some insight into the type of music played in Yorkshire in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries.
This event has been organised by a local supporter group to help raise money for the Art Fund.
