Early Music Exhibition London

Dutch viol maker René Slotboom asked me to be his assistant on the Early Music Exhibition in the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich – London, November 12th to 14th.

It was the perfect opportunity to meet musicians and instrument makers in this amazing setting.

I discussed Renaissance bows with Alison Crum, the well known English viol player and teacher, and viol player and cellist Markku Luolajan-Mikkola tried a cello bow.

I played consort with Richard Jones, Renaissance viol and bow maker from Scotland. It was very nice to meet Jane Julier, who made the viol consort for the Conservatoire of Paris with Judith Craft, for which Christophe Coin ordered three Acacia bows recently. Some fine cellists tried an Acacia bow, see photos below.

London was a better place to be at that moment than Paris.
