Easy as Lying: The Music of Shakespeare's Globe

  • 1717 Meetinghouse 2049 Meetinghouse Way West Barnstable, Ma. United States (map)

This spirited musical celebration was conceived in honor of William Shakespeare’s 450th birthday and the splendid music heard at the original Globe theater in London. We present songs the Bard mentions by name, works by his talented musical contemporaries including Thomas Morley, John Dowland, and Robert Johnson, plus excerpts from the plays read aloud in original pronunciation. Dance tunes from the Elizabethan and Jacobean courts and a saucy ballad or two round out the evening’s festivities!

Karen Burciaga - violin, guitar, voice
Dan Meyers - recorder, flute, bagpipes, percussion, voice
Josh Schreiber Shalem - bass viol, voice
Matthew Wright - lute, voice

"Say, what abridgement have you for this evening? What masque? what music? How shall we beguile the lazy time, if not with some delight?"
