New Gittern!

When I was at the Medieval Music In the Dales festival two weeks ago, I bought a new gittern – a medieval instrument which is an early form of the guitar. This one was made by Ugo Casalonga from Corsica. He has a wonderful workshop, where he makes all manner of medieval stringed instruments, entirely by hand. I enjoyed talking to Ugo, and I loved the sound of the gittern he had on display. It was a great opportunity to buy this instrument, and Bolton Castle was a wonderful setting for the Instruments Exhibition during the festival.
