Hi there,

I've been learning irish bouzouki for nearly six months, having played guitar semi-professionally for over 15 years. I only mention the guitar thing so you know I'm not a complete beginner! I'm mostly interested in traditional English tunes but I've got pretty broad tastes so I'm happy to give anything a go.

Having played in bands before, it feels weird playing on my own so I wondered whether there's anyone in East Yorks at a similar level to me (or an astonishingly patient virtuoso!) at any instrument who'd appreciate someone to practice with?

Drop me a line here if you're interested!

Rob

I think you perhaps should try to make contact with Bill Sables and check out Steve Gardham ~ see the Goole Waterways Museum thread too!

Hi and thanks for the tips:

Betsy: Yeah, I've heard there are some sessions that might tolerate a humble beginner in Beverley (it's just up the road from me) but I've never been able to track any of them down. Whenever I find out a time and a place, I turn up and the place is empty! Can you recommend any?

Ray: Cheers - I'll check them out.

Anyone else with any suggestions?

Rob

Keep this thread active for a while and some of the 'Ull crowd are sure to appear with local info...
Quack!

The sessions in Hull are First Sunday in the Wellington Inn, Russell Street, starting about 3pm, First Monday in the Black Boy, High Street starting about 8pm, Second Tuesday in the Minerva 8pm and Third Monday in the Wellington 8pm. The Black Boy session is mainly tunes, the Wellington afternoon session is mainly songs, the other sessions are more mixed but it depends who turns up.

D'you think they saw you coming, Rob? :)

Seriously, they are a welcoming, friendly crowd in my experience (a few years ago now), so have fun!

Rob, have a look at the thread called 'Yorkshire Waterways Folk Weekend'. The event is at the Goole Waterways Museum (it's in the East Riding these days) on July 24th and 25th and I'm sure you will meet some local musicians in the informal afternoon sessions there.

Some great suggestions there - thanks all. I'm mortified that I'm going to be away and miss the Yorkshire Waterways weekend - sounds great fun.

Noreen: I was trying not to take it too personally but I did spot a crowd of people with instruments legging it out of the back door of the pub as I came in the front... ;-)

Thanks also to those of you who suggested sessions. I'll try to pop in to some of those in the coming weeks.

Rob

Am bringing this back to the top so it might catch Steve Gardham's eye, as he's part of the Hull scene but also a regular volunteer at the Goole Waterways Museum.

It caught my eye first time, Gailo. Everyone's already mentioned any info that I could give. But do keep up the good work plugging the Sobriety weekend.

Just in case anyone's wondering the 'Sobriety' weekend is anything but, except for people like me who will have to drive.

Which bit of East Yorkshire? I work in Pocklington and like strumming the guitar though I'm more partial to Scottish and Irish music than English

I'm in Willerby, just your side of Hull.

Hi Nick,

Although I prefer English tunes as a rule, I've no problem with playing Scottish or Irish (it's an 'Irish' bouzouki, after all!). Maybe you could give me the names of a handful of your favourite tunes and I'll see if I can learn them?

Rob can you give me some examples of some English tunes that you play and I might try and learn them on the fiddle?

Rob,

I've been to a few of the recent Tuesday and Friday sessions at The Tiger in Beverley and can confirm that they're a friendly bunch. There is some cross-over in attendance, but it mainly seems to be different people turning up on different days.

At the Friday sessions, they play pretty much anything, whilst on Tuesdays, they mainly stick to tunes from a couple of session books, one of which is all stuff composed by one of the regulars, whilst the other is mainly standard session favourites.

Both sessions are very welcoming to beginners. Well, they've politely put up with my ineptitude on the melodeon, with no complaints, so far.

Hope to see you there soon.

John

Hi Rob, here below, are the Beverley sessions as of the moment.

The Tiger session on Tuesday is aimed at those who are fed up with twanging and tootling away at home and want to try playing along with other musicians but for whom a proper session is too fast and full of tunes you don't know.
It seems to be providing what they need.

regards
JAKE
