Songs and Stories with Renaissance Lute

A Road Scholar Program by Judith Heineman & Daniel

Join storyteller Judith Heineman and musician Daniel Marcotte in period costume as they present songs and tales of maidens, pirates and dragons, Irish fairy legends, stories of Robin Hood and King Arthur, including the Arthurian Legend of “the Loathly Lady” that asks, “what do women desire most?” This age-old puzzlement is answered in this engaging program, as listeners ultimately get to make new choices while taking the journey into their imagination. Story allows us to reflect on values and customs and to pass on culture. As part of this process, audiences will also explore the bardic tradition in early modern Europe as led by this skillful teller and gifted musician.
