Howard Bass and Jeremy Bass, lutes and guitars
In their first public appearance together, father-son duo Howard Bass and Jeremy Bass present a concert of lute duets from Renaissance England and Italy and guitar solos and duets from the 20 th and 21 st century. Composers include John Dowland, Francesco Canova da Milano, David del Puerto, Andres Segovia, Leo Brouwer, and Lennon and McCartney. While Howard and Jeremy have played together informally for several years (and at one family wedding), this will be their public debut as a duo. Please join us for an afternoon of beautiful music from one of the best acoustic venues in the region.
