Krummhorns and gitterns
Ever hear a krummhorn, gittern or pipe and tabor? Master musician Sue Carney will demonstrate various acoustic instruments from the Stone Age through the days of Shakespeare and beyond from 3 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 29, at the Unitarian Center, 87 Fourth St., Ashland.
The demonstration reflects Carney's desire to share the evolution and surprising sounds of acoustic instruments from long ago and to reflect on the ancient mystery that is music. She will answer questions about the instruments and the history of music. Carney is known for her work with the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and the Terra Nova Consort. Terra Nova is an ensemble dedicated to exploring the roots of world music.
Admission is $15, free for ages 11 and younger. Proceeds will benefit music programs of the Rogue Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship. Call 541-482-4755 for information.
