Grounds Abound: Entwyned Early Music Plays Catchy Chords and Righteous Riffs from the 16th & 17th Centuries
Eric Hansen performed as a professional bassist and lutenist in concerts and on recordings with nationally known musicians. Over the years Eric played the lute on two gold albums and two multi-platinum albums. He holds a master's degree in music history and did post graduate work in musicology at the University of Chicago with the late Howard Mayer Brown. In addition to his work with Entwyned Early Music, he continues to perform on the lute as a member of the Lute Society of America, Amherst Early Music, and Early Music America.
I play solo literature for the Renaissance lute from about 1500 - about 1610 as well as some contemporary literature for the instrument. With my trio Entwyned Early Music I play continuo on the archlute and theorbo.
