Yes think it is a good idea and would be interested.
If people want particular music/books etc can have them in advance for them.

We have a book of Early Music for the harp, most of which can be played on a 15 string harp. It's in clear modern notation too! It goes from 1150 to 1550 and has some lovely pieces in. If the range goes too high, you can play an octave lower, play around with the spacings etc. It's on our website.

The cornamuse plays like a treble recorder one octave and one note. Quite easy to get a note, and doesn't take an excessive amount of puff (unlike the evil bombarde!). Also shawms, crumhorns, 3 hole pipes, recorders, rackets, among others. Having got a cornamuse I can recommend it, it makes a lovely...

Cornamuse

Found a cracking new medieval/early tudor instrument, a Loriman Pipe, basically a cornamuse, about 20" long made of walnut a straight bore, with a capped reed, does not take as much breath as a Bombarde, the reed is enclosed so that you do not need to actually put the reed in your mouth, and has the...

Nice to see some Tudor music being performed, most a bit of a distance from us, but Warwick looks promising. Is the program likely to be from the tracks on the link?

If your trumpet has no slides or valves it will be limited to notes of the harmonic series, and so could play simple fanfares or stuff as complex as that played on a bugle. More complex pieces of music, would be dificult, or at the very least restricted. It could be fun composing your own though!, a...

Have no lutes at the moment but can get them for you, we can get them with modern machine heads or the more authentic types with wooden tuning pins.

If you call in at the stall we could have a chat and see if we can help.
