AC replied to T.Robb's discussion When did the first Lutes arrive in North America?
"The first important settlement by Europeans was Santo Domingo in the present day Dominican Republic, founded just a few years after Columbus' first trip, so it would be likely that the first instruments would have arrived there. If not, then…"

"I agree. There’s no reason a lute couldn't have been safely stowed for an Atlantic crossing. Also upon the death of Peter Bulkeley in Concord Massachusetts in the year 1659, “ three court-appointed appraisers made an inventory of…"
