Hollinshead Bass web"A Wintry Mix" is a potpourri of traditional and Elizabethan songs to enliven the short days and long nights of winter. The songs' themes and stories cover the darkness associated with winter, traditional winter tunes with advice to ensure a good new year, and the cold of winter – with some ideas for warming, from the inside out!

Barbara Hollinshead ~ mezzo-soprano
Howard Bass ~ lutes

Barbara and Howard have together explored repertoire for lute and voice for over 30 years. They are known for their engaging performances and for crafting creatively-themed programs (Birds, Bees, Flowers and Trees, Songs from Shakespeare’s Troupe, and Time, Cruel Time, among others). Their 3 CD’s (Love’s Lost…and Found, Airs de Cour, and Dowland in Darkness) are available today.
