Jamie Akers Has Realised A Dazzling Career As A Multi-Instrumentalist Of Historical Stringed Instruments Including Early 19th Century Guitars, Lutes and The Amazing Theorbo. Ged Brockie Of GMI Find Out More About This Fascinating Musician & His Instruments.
Once the instrument of choice for those with plucked string leaning, the Lute is now a distant second to the guitar in terms of popularity. This is unfortunate as it’s beautiful sound and aesthetic should mean that it gets a lot more attention than it does.
Jamie Akers has worked with just about every major orchestra in the UK, recorded for film, taught across Europe and performed at some of the most prestigious venues in the UK and beyond.
Ged Brockie delves into, or at least talks about medieval instruments and later examples of stringed instrument history with Jamie as well as questioning him about the an instrument that he owns which you can see in the above image which is called the Theorbo.
