Early music performance


Based in South West London, Loki Music is an 'umbrella' term for collaborative concerts and performances of early music  involving professional musicians, teachers, historic venues, actors and festivals. Directed by William Summers, it organises regular concerts in local venues and in East Anglia, as well as performances elsewhere.


Regular venues include 

Garrick's Temple to Shakespeare, Hampton [https://www.garrickstemple.org.uk]

Marble Hill House, Twickenham [https://www.english-heritage.org.uk/visit/places/marble-hill-house/]

The Lovekyn Chapel, Kingston [https://historianruby.com/2018/09/10/lovekyn-chapel/]

Walpole Old Chapel, Suffolk [http://walpoleoldchapel.co.uk]


Anyone willing and able to listen to music is welcome to attend our concerts. Performers introduce their music and are usually available for questions, and plenty of information about the venues is available too. Enquiries concerning specific performances or musicians are welcome, as are proposals for further collaborations. We use period instruments, constructed according to methods used when each type of repertoire was originally composed: this usually includes using gut strings, shorter bows and wooden flutes, for example.

Loki Music is run from South West London by me - William Summers. I teach Recorder and Flute, and also coach and conduct ensembles, teach music appreciation and lead workshops in early music. Most sessions can take place either online or face to face.
