The Ephemera

Bonnie Prince Charlie’s Musette…or one of them at least!

There are two Musettes in existence that purportedly belonged to Charles Edward Stuart (Bonnie Prince Charlie). Amanda is currently researching what repertoire Charles Edward might have played and so was thrilled to be able to visit this fine specimen of a Musette, in the West Highland Museum in Fort William. Thanks must go to the Museum for allowing her to take and share these images.

Amanda is hoping to publish her findings as an article as soon as lockdown allows her to visit one final archive. Keep checking back here for publication details. And see below for a link to a research seminar she gave in January 2021 on some of her findings.

Here is a link to a research seminar on the topic of what Bonnie Prince Charlie might have played on his musette. Given by Amanda at the University of Aberdeen in January 2021. Please excuse the sound quality. And for some reason the embedded sound clips didn’t record, hence the odd silences.

Bibliographie sur la Musette – Florence Getreau

Here at The Musette Society we are great believers in sharing our work. And so we are really grateful to Florence Getreau for allowing us to share her bibliography of scholarly work concerning musette. This is the most up to date resource of this kind and will be useful to anyone researching anything to do with musette. We are also happy to see that Florence’s book, Voir la Musique, has now been published in China. Felicitations et merci beaucoup Florence!
