There will be the chance to hear Lincolnshire traditional songs on the theme of Spring from Folk ‘Round ‘Ere; have refreshments to the sound of Medieval & Renaissance music; learn Tudor dancing, hear instruments of the time and find out about life for a Tudor rural court musician. There will be Morris dancing outside, musician’s sessions and singarounds in the pubs and face painting in the Heritage Room.
This is all leading up to the climax of the day which will be a concert by Passamezzo. The performance will consist of ballads, lutesongs, consort music, madrigals, dance melodies and readings, and follows the season from the melting of the ice at the beginning of Spring, through maying, maypoles, hobby horses and feasting, to the sheepshearing and Whitsun holidays that mark the coming of Summer.
