Classical Performance - Guitar Sarasota - Nigel North
Classical WSMR’s Bethany Cagle is joined in studio by lute player Nigel North. He was initially inspired into music, at age 7, by the early 60's instrumental pop group "The Shadows". Nigel studied classical music through the violin and guitar, eventually discovering his real path in life, the lute, when he was 15. Basically self-taught on the lute, he has (for over 30 years) developed a unique musical life which embraces activities as a teacher, accompanist, soloist, director and writer. Since January 1999 Nigel North has been Professor of Lute at the Early Music Institute, Indiana University, Bloomington.
