hope the workshop is a success.
one slight correction, perhaps I misinterpreted your statement, the traditional key in east anglia, was only C, as regards single row melodeons,
the fiddle players played in G D and A, although some tuned the whole fiddle down, when playing WITH C ONE ROWS so that they were playing as if they were in D, But were in actual fact in C.
a number of TWO ROW MELODEON players played GD boxes.
Oscar Woods WAS THE MAIN EXPONENT OF THE c one row melodeon, and more latterly Cyril Barber.
I am fairly sure the Bulwers did not play exclusively in C, but mainly g and d, and I am fairly sure both PERCY BROWN and Font Watling played two row gd melodeons.
Reg Reeder played his Hammered dulcimer in C, so C was used but so was G and D.

Thanks, Dick. The wording above had to be rather compressed to fit in the space available on the flier I copied it from and finer distinctions had to be cut. I'm sure we'll go into more detail about historic keys and instruments on the day.

I hope we'll hear some old one-row melodeons on the day as they have a splendid punchy, raunchy sound. The newer ones are more subtle and biddable instruments but they can sound a bit polite sometimes.

Certainly! This is filling up nicely, but there are places left for day and evening.

In the evening there will be plenty of opportunities to join in tunes, so anyone should feel free to bring an instrument even if they don't want to do a solo spot.

This is going to be jolly good, with a nice range of instruments attending. We can still fit in a few more. There will be

In the evening, Katie stresses that there will be plenty of opportunity to join in tunes rather than just sit and listen. Floor singers are,a s always, very welcome too.
