Renaissance Jukebox

Forbes Library, 20 West St, Northampton (20 West St, Northampton MA 01060)


Renaissance Jukebox presents music inspired by the works of Wm. Shakespeare (and beyond):

This program includes quotes, songs, ballads, and instrumental works associated with Shakespeare in his own era, and modern songs that connect with our personal and sometimes unruly responses to Shakespeare’s texts. Works of Campion, Danyel, Dowland, Holborne, and other 17th-century composers, in juxtaposition with modern songs evoking related stories, moods, and/or imagery, by Jason Isbell, Cat Stevens, the Everly Brothers, Phoebe Bridgers, Hozier and others.
