SMITHFIELD, Va. – Not into whatever’s popular on the radio these days? Go back in time and enjoy the soothing sounds of the 17th century!

Historic St. Luke’s Church will host a 17th-century benefit concert by the Locrian Consort during the 17th Century Isle of Wight County: A Living History Event September 9 at 4 p.m. Proceeds from the benefit concert will help support the Educational Program at Historic St. Luke’s.

The concert will be a rare blend of presenting ancient music in an educational and entertaining manner. The Locrian Consort will showcase little-known period instruments including the sackbut, krumhorn and gemshorn.
