Subject: Sam Sweeney fiddle workshop, Lewes 3 Mar
From: Valmai Goodyear
Date: 09 Dec 11 - 07:03 AM

Sam Sweeney leads an all-day workshop in Lewes and performs in the evening at the Lewes Saturday Folk Club with the Fay Hield Trio, Fay Hield (voice) and Rob Harbron(English concertina). Fay and Rob are also leading all-day workshops on English traditional song and all concertina systems. Any of these would make a wonderful Christmas present for a singer, concertina player or fiddler. Full details and downloadable booking forms are also on the club website.

SAM SWEENEY ENGLISH FIDDLE WORKSHOP

Saturday 3rd. March 2012
10.45 a.m.- 4.45 p.m. Places £35
Elephant & Castle White Hill Lewes BN7 2DJ   
            
            Sam is a dazzling young fiddler in the English traditional style who's been booked as a soloist at festivals from the age of 11. He founded his own band Kerfuffle. Currently he plays with Bellowhead, Jon Boden & The Remnant Kings, The Fay Hield Trio and in a duo with accordionist, singer & dancer Hannah James. He also plays viola, bagpipes & drums. He's an experienced & inspiring fiddle tutor.
             The workshop will cover learning some tunes and discovering how to search for exciting repertoire yourself, introducing and improving ornamentation and bowing technique, and how to free yourself from the simple notes of a tune, play 'less classically' and make a tune come alive.
            Some music will be sent out in advance.

IN THE EVENING SAM PLAYS WITH THE FAY HIELD TRIO at the ELEPHANT & CASTLE (£9; tickets from club, website or address at end of this form)

Places for the three all-day workshops with Sam Sweeney (fiddle) Fay Hield (English traditional song) and Rob Harbon (all concertina systems) are going briskly, but we still have some left. The three appear at the Lewes Saturday Folk Club in the evening as the Fay Hield Trio; tickets for that are available at £9 each.
