      Easy as Lying: The Music of Shakespeare's Globe

      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

      Presented by The 1717 Meetinghouse Foundation
