About this group, renowned lutenist Ronn McFarlane writes “Ayreheart grew out of my desire to write new music for the lute––the most popular instrument of the Renaissance––and make it accessible to a wider audience.

My first compositions were conceived as solos. But I was soon writing music that could not be fully expressed on solo lute and I needed musician friends to help realize the music. Willard Morris and Mattias Rucht teamed up with me first. Then in 2013 Brian Kay joined us and the band was complete. Together we perform our own original music as well as Renaissance music from the time of Shakespeare.”
