Lutes and Ukes

A string consort like no other


Thursday 7 May 2020 St Dunstan’s Church Mayfield, 7.30pm £15, £8, £5

A string consort like no other, a musical first: four lutes, four ukuleles and A MISSION: to convert fans of the baroque theorbo and the contemporary electric cigarbox ukulele to a shared cultural experience. A stringed sensation welding musical themes from Heckel’s Lute Book of 1565 to La Bamba of 1958, the two sets of instruments blend into a harmonious one, stretching strings and credulity beyond belief.

Lutes lead by Liz Kenny and Ukes by George Hinchcliffe of the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain
