Nigel North - A Varietie of Lute Lessons - The Observer

As a youngster acclaimed lutenist Nigel North was inspired by The Shadows but don't expect to find a glut of Hank tunes on A Varietie Of Lute Lessons.

North moved from violin to guitar before falling in love with the lute some 20 years ago and he hasn't looked back since.

A Varietie Of Lute Lessons is a mesmerising album featuring assorted tunes by the likes of 17th century English composer John Dowland, Italian virtuoso Laurencini and French musician Robert Ballard.

Every note sparkles as North breathes life and passion into a beautiful collection.
