Fyre and Lightning Consort

The Fyre and Lightning Consort, founded in 1974, is a group of musicians living in Central Vermont dedicated to the study and performance of Medieval and Renaissance music. Throughout the past 40 years, we have also become increasingly interested in traditional music of various types, including the music of the Sefardic Jews and traditional music of the British Isles, as well as arrangements and new compositions created especially for us by us.

We have a large collection of early instruments including recorders, flutes, whistles, krumhorn, cornamuse, cornetto, bagpipe, harp, lute, psaltery, vielle, violas da gamba and assorted percussion.

Throughout its long performing history Fyre and Lightning has delighted audiences of all ages and musical tastes with its lively and interesting approach. We offer a variety of performance options including full length concerts, lecture-demonstrations, special school programs and workshops for audiences of all ages.
