Medieval Music- Lecture Series

January 27, 2009

Yes the true music nerd has come out for this post!  I took a couple of music history classes in college and there is still something about the rawness of the shawm that I find utterly compelling.

The National Museum of Ireland are holding a Medieval Music lecture series in the Museum of Archaeology on Wednesdays starting on February 11 and continuing until the 18th of March.  Most of the lectures will be at 1pm and 6:30pm (some exceptions) and will cover a different topic each week.  Hmm as if I didn’t already haunt the museum- I love archaeology and at the moment I happen to work next door!

You can have a look at all of the lectures on their calendar of events– although as an IT aside they are filtering their dates backwards so the last ones are first and the first ones last in the list.

The last lecture is on the harp and of course that brought Joanna Newsom to mind…
