ALL money donated will go to support this site and my equivalent Scottish Guittar site – I give my time and money to these projects without financial gain. Anything you donate will directly help maintain these two sites. Your donation could help pay for annual fees to keep the site online, buy a string (I need lots of them!) or – if you can afford it – help pay for an instrument.

This notice was first created on 2nd January, 2017. Thanks to many contributors and to Le Luth Doré, I now have a baroque lute, have been able to string it in gut, have sent a 18th- century-style ‘Guittar’ to Holland for repair, and have enough to keep this site online for a few years. Many thanks to all the contributors! The message I get from PayPal does not include your email address, so I’m afraid I can’t thank you in person.
