Spare Parts (just Bryan Creer and me on this occasion) are running a FREE English tunes practice session on Saturday 27th. June at the Crawley Folk Festival, Sussex, UK. The session runs from 10.30 - 11.30 a.m. in the Hawth.

As always, it's be a chance to play through current favourite session tunes slowly plenty of times to get them fixed in the brain. The tunes we'll be using are on the Tunes page of the
Spare Parts website in .pdf and midi form , with slowed-down versions too.

All instruments are welcome. Even a bit of percussion can be useful keeping people together. Recording devices are welcome too. Copies of the Lewes Favourites tune book will also be available.

I'l have booking forms with me for Will Duke's Scan Tester workshop , Bonnie Shaljean's Irish harp workshop, and
Tommy Peoples's Irish fiddle workshop .

If you're not staying at the Festival in the evening, you could come and see The Claque
at the Lewes Saturday Folk Club .

Ahah! I think this is helpfully down on the Crawley Myspace page as a concertina workshop so you might want to get them to correct that. Do you know if there are any actual sessions going on at Crawley? I'll be taking my travel melodeon on the offchance...

Blast! Thanks for pointing that out. It's on an obscure corner of the blog; I think the rest of the advertising has made it clear that it's a tunes practice session. We'll take some concertina part-playing music as well just in case: we've made three-part arrangments of The Cotillion and Percy Brown's Veleta, which are also session tunes.

I'm not aware of any specific sessions happening during the festival, but if the weather's fine and there's a corner of the campsite available something might happen.

Horsham folk club has an open evening tonight starting at 8.00 p.m. in the Elgar Room of the Hawth; that might kick off with some join-in tunes, or it might be possible to get there early and play a few anyway if the room's free.

Hope to see you there,

Tootle pip,
