Lewes Saturday Folk Club Workshop No 164
Chris Sherburn: IRISH MUSIC FOR CONCERTINA (any system)
Places £35
Saturday 20th. October 2012
10.45 a.m.- 4.45 p.m.
                
Chris grew up in Yorkshire surrounded by folk music of all kinds & has a huge affinity with Irish music. He is one of the finest living players of Anglo concertina in the Irish style. He & Denny Bartley were founder members of the band Last Night's Fun; he's also appeared at the Proms with Bella Hardy. His playing is stirring, exhilarating & beautiful, with a wonderful way of combining dance tunes & songs to enhance both. He has tutored at Concertinas @ Witney & many folk festivals.
        The workshop is primarily for CG Anglo concertina but other systems are welcome. It will cover popular Irish session scales, left-handed & County Clare style, ornamentation & timing. Music reading isn't essential. For beginners upwards. Some music will be sent out in advance (dots & midis).

We still have some places for this workshop. I have made midis and pdfs of the two tunes Chris suggests, from O'Neill's Music of Ireland, if anyone would find those helpful.

We have two places left for the workshop and a reasonable number of tickets for Chris's evening performance with Denny Bartley. There are still places for Denny's all-day guitar and song workshop; at this notice please bring cash on the day as there isn't time to put a cheque through the club's account.
