Re: Seeking a Medieval Reenactment group - Derby/Nottingham

EDIT: - Just in case any suggests them, I've sent an email to both Team Falchion, and Dogs of War. I'm waiting to hear from Dogs of War, but I don't think I will be visiting them. They are ideally placed for me to visit, but they meet/train on a tuesday. If anything changes, I will be certain to get...

Seeking a Medieval Reenactment group - Derby/Nottingham

Hi,
as the title says - I'm looking for a medieval group near so I can join. Sadly, I found one that would be ideal however they meet on a tuesday. Monday, tuesday and thursday are already busy for me I'm afraid. I was hoping to find one that meets at a weekend.

Many thanks, Ben

Re: Early Music

Cool thanks for that, have just registered, waiting for it to register now. I have heard of a sackbut for sale, so it just depends on how much it is. Really I want a bass sackbut, but the bank account tell me I cant afford one!

Re: Early Music

By todays standard yes. The trombone has been developed into a very powerful creature indeed, however the sackbut is a much smaller, less powerful instrument. Much the same with the lute and its modern relative the guitar. For a modern trombonist it would be possible to play louder and stronger than...

Re: Early Music

Why strange? The sackbut was used as a supportive instrument for voices in church choirs. (Obviously the sackbut developed into the trombone which is itself widely accepted as a solo instrument) The lute as an accompaniment for singing. So I see it as a perfectly acceptable duo. Infact we have done ...

Early Music

Hi,
Im just wondering if there is much call for 'early musicians'. Im seriously contemplating getting myself a sackbutt, and my girlfriend a lute. We are both music teachers etc but never really looked into early music. Would we get much business as minstrels? Many thanks, Ben
