In Which I Open My Mouth and Speak

In November 2016 I was invited to present a talk at a TEDx event in Penticton, British Columbia, Canada. What was my topic? You guessed it, lutes! The event was live-streamed, and then later, the talks were edited and uploaded to YouTube. Here's mine:

It's not often that I'm asked to organize my thoughts on lute making coherently for presentation to a general audience, but I think it's a good thing to do every once in a while. I enjoy telling people about what I do, and introducing them to the beautiful musical instrument to which I have devoted my working life. My thanks to Brian Hughes, who organized the event, and to the Lakeshore Resort in Penticton for the lovely accommodations.
