Tilly on…minstrels

Tilly and I were talking about musical instruments, specifically the lute. I explained what they look like and was moving on to their appearance in history.

Me: Have you heard of minstrels?

Tilly: I’ve heard of mints…and nostrils

Me: Ha! No minstrels.

Tilly: Ooh yes the sweets.

Me: No minstrels. They were men in medieval times who entertained kings and queens and their guests by playing music for them. Because of course in those days they didn’t have (I was about to say CDs)…

Tilly: Bagpipes!

Me: Erm you are probably right. I give up. Sausages for tea?
