Travel back in time for an evening as Glastonbury plays music from the Celtic countries, Tudor England and Renaissance Europe. Carol and Dave Sharp play many kinds of music, including haunting Harp and Flute or songs of long ago to rousing dance tunes. Glastonbury includes period costumes, hand carved instruments and storytelling with elements of culture, history and language. (Stories include: Tom the Tailor, David of the White Rock, The Glashan's Flute and King Halvar's Cat) Instruments include a hand carved Celtic Harp, Bowed Psaltery, Irish Flute, Whistles, Recorders, Flute d'Accord, Alto Cornamuse, Rebec, Zils, Bodhran, Tamborine, Mountain Dulcimer. (known as the Schietholt or Epinette). Vocals are sung in Gaelic, Welsh, English, and Latin. You can even see a Unicorn percussion toy that was used in Medieval and Renaissance music and plays. For willing participants we might pass out percussion instruments and teach a dance or two from the villages and courts of Europe.
