Subject: Tom McConville fiddle workshop 9 March
From: Valmai Goodyear
Date: 13 Feb 13 - 02:40 AM

Lewes Saturday Folk Club Workshop No 171
Places £35
Saturday 9th. March 2013
10.45 a.m.- 4.45 p.m.
Elephant & Castle White Hill Lewes BN7 2DJ UK
        Tom's 'Northern swing fiddle' combines Scots/Donegal styles, with Newcastle hornpipes a speciality. He has a lovely flowing style, beautiful tone & faultless technique, & is a also a fine singer with a powerful yet mellow voice. He has played with Bob Fox, Kieran Halpin, his own band Dabhand, Alistair Anderson's Syncopace, Phil Cunningham, Barbara Dixon, Chris Newman & Pauline Cato. He's an inspiration for the new generation of musicians including Seth Lakeman & Kate Rusby.        

        The workshop will cover the art of bowing & ornamentation used in the playing of simple jigs, reels & hornpipes. Some of Tom's own tunes will be included with the odd surprise. All will be inspired to play with love, confidence & passion, fun being paramount! Music will be sent out in advance.

Tom has sent some advance music for this and I've scanned it to send out by email. We still have some daytime places and evening tickets left. There are also places for David Newey's all-day guitar workshop at The Royal Oak.
