Ronn Interviewed about Shakespeare's First Folio by Dakota Midday

Dakota Midday: First Folio! The Book That Gave Us Shakespeare

By LORI WALSH

The book that gave the world William Shakespeare is one of the most treasured tomes of all time. Shakespeare’s First Folio is visiting the National Music Museum on the campus of the University of South Dakota. It’s a traveling exhibit from the Folger Shakespeare Library and it’s making one stop in each of the 50 states.

Dakota Midday spends a literary lunch hour swimming in all things Shakespeare with Dr. Darlene Farabee, project director and chair of the English Department at the University of South Dakota, and Cleveland Johnson, director of the National Music Museum.

Plus, Ronn McFarlane is a grammy-nominated lutenist. He is founder of Ayreheart, a quartet that performs traditional Renaissance music as well as original compositions. McFarlane talks with Dakota Midday host Lori Walsh about how music was used in Elizabethan times and what classic rock and lute music have in common.
