For 28 years now, the American-born lutenist Jacob Heringman has made his home in England, where he has established himself as a leading soloist, song accompanist and chamber musician. As a soloist, Jacob has released several highly acclaimed CDs of renaissance lute repertoire, including recitals of Holborne, Bakfark, pieces from the Jane Pickeringe and Siena manuscripts, and intabulations of Josquin. As an accompanist, Jacob has had the good fortune to work regularly with many fine singers, including Emma Kirkby, Barbara Bonney, Michael Chance, John Potter, Clare Wilkinson, Faye Newton and Catherine King. Regular instrumental collaborators in recent years include the Dufay Collective, Theatre of the Ayre, Ariel Abramovich, Adel Salameh, Pellingmans' Saraband and The Dowland Project. Jacob also appears on many film soundtracks (including Harry Potter III, The Hobbit, and Robin Hood), and has recently become increasingly active in the area of improvised and crossover music. Jacob also teaches (and uses) the Alexander Technique.
