7 thoughts on “For Those About To Lute

    The lute as a stringed instrument long preceded the guitar. It was found in ancient China, and is still played in Turkic countries like the -stan republics, and in Turkey. The instrument was popular in southern Europe. Vivaldi composed a short Lute Concerto. Sean O’Riada played Irish music on the harpsichord. He might have tried the lute, or encouraged a lutist, for traditional music, but died too young at 40.

      That’s very interesting,thanks. Andy Irvine is a guy who likes to try the more obscure string instruments so I wouldn’t be surprised if he has tried the Lute.
