Evening with an internationally renowned lutenist
Hailed in the international media as “one of the world’s greatest solo performers of renaissance lute music”, English lutenist Ben Salfield performs in concert at The Stithians Centre on Saturday 16 October.
Known for his on-the-edge, charismatic style of performance, Ben Salfield has performed to some of the largest audiences ever recorded for lute music, and given concerts at scores of music festivals, both nationally and internationally.
Apart from solo concerts, Salfield has appeared with many ensembles, from duos to string quartets. He is a founder member of the latin | jazz | rock group “Horsemen of the Apocalypse”, which features his brother Jon on Flamenco guitar, plus Rowan Nightingale on bass and Simon Stanton on percussion.

Also known as an editor, composer, lecturer and teacher, he has appeared on juries for many major music competitions, given numerous masterclasses across Europe, and taught in international summer schools in Italy and Poland. He also runs a thriving private teaching practice in Cornwall.
