Q&A with Ronn McFarlane of Ayreheart
August 12, 2015
Ayreheart creates new music from ancient instruments. We recently had the opportunity to ask Ronn McFarlane a few questions about the song and video forTaste of Lightning. Ayreheart will be playing the World Stage at 5:00 p.m.
McFarlane and his group, Ayreheart, have two lute players. The music they make combines melodies from the Renaissance and Baroque periods with the drive of rock ’n’ roll.

On Sunday, Ayreheart will appear in concert at Peter Hall at Moravian College in Bethlehem for a program that combines Renaissance music from the British Isles with acoustic rock originals. Performing with vocals, lutes, guitar, violin, bass and percussion, Ayreheart will feature music of John Dowland and William Byrd, as well as old ballad tunes from England, Scotland and Wales.
Ayreheart's first video has been released. "Taste of Lightning" is an original composition by lutenist Ronn McFarlane. In addition to being the first video for the group, this is also the first audio recording for the group with lead singer Brian Kay. A studio recording of "Taste of Lightning" will be included on Ayreheart's upcoming album of all-original music.
