Grammy-nominated lutenist, Ronn McFarlane will play a Solo Performance TONIGHT!! Sunday November 17@Celtic Concerts at the Old Brogue, 760 Walker Road / Great Falls, VA  

Born in West Virginia, Ronn spent his early years in Maryland. At thirteen, upon hearing "Wipeout" by the Surfaris, he fell wildly in love with music and taught himself to play on a "cranky sixteen-dollar steel-string guitar." Ronn kept at it, playing blues and rock music on the electric guitar while studying classical guitar. He graduated with honors from Shenandoah Conservatory and continued guitar studies at Peabody Conservatory before turning his full attention and energy to the lute in 1978. The following year, Mr. McFarlane began to perform solo recitals on the lute and became a member of the Baltimore Consort. Since then, he has toured throughout the United States, Canada and Europe with the Baltimore Consort and as a soloist.
