A troupe of Blueskin Bay residents. led by Nick Prosser, Master of Medieval Musick, treated us to a concert of medieval music on Monday night.

The group had been meeting once a week in May to celebrate NZ Music Month.

They performed several tunes from Europe on a variety of instruments.

We were even treated to a world debut of one of their own compositions!

A great time was had by all!

Perhaps they’ll have a reunion concert for next year’s music month……….watch this space!
