Music and Cultural Life in Shakespeare’s England: Jeremy Barlow
April 28 - 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm
A fascinating talk with visual images and music extracts about both the high art of court masques, music making and dancing among the gentry and nobility, and the broadside ballads and country dances of popular culture. Learn, too, how Shakespeare drew on both sources for material in his plays.
Jeremy is the leading expert on music in Shakespeare's England (contributing over a hundred entries in the Oxford Book of Shakespeare). As producer and performer, he worked for years in London theatres (including the National) and the BBC. He founded the Broadside Band - whose CDs include the wonderful Songs and Dances from Shakespeare. Jeremy has also published several books including The Enraged Musician: Hogarth's Musical Imagery and A Dance Through Time: Images of Western Social dancing from the Middle Ages to Modern Times.
