One of Europe’s leading lutenists, Lynda appears on more than 100 commercial recordings, is principal lutenist with La Serenissima, Ex Cathedra, and the King’s Consort, directs the lute ensemble Chordophony, and works worldwide as a theorbo continuo player. She holds a PhD for her work on continuo lutes, and has written for the New Grove, Early Music and Apollo, plus numerous pedagogic articles for the UK lute society.
Lynda teaches lute, theorbo and baroque guitar, and runs continuo club, an informal class where we explore continuo playing - the key to two centuries of music! We start with simple harmony and bass lines, and learn to improvise in a stress-free fun way. Sessions are open to all, whether you sing or play a treble or bass instrument. Participants can bring music with a continuo part, or just bring your instrument and learn to play a continuo part, or improvise above it.
