Our regular tunes workshops start on Wednesday night. If you're in Kent and have been thinking about playing English music, this might be the time to start!

Here's the blurb...

Learn to play traditional tunes for music sessions and dancing in the company of other beginners. Play slowly and practice whatever's causing difficulty for you. Join fiddler, concertina, guitar and melodeon player Gavin Atkin at the Gun & Spitroast pub at Horsmonden, Kent (TN12 8HT) on the SECOND and FOURTH Wednesdays of each month at 8pm until the summer of 2015.

Please feel free to join us at any point through the year - we do play our tunes very slowly to begin with, and play only a two or three over and over again on any given evening!

Admission is free. Typical instruments might be melodeon, fiddle, concertina, mandolin, harmonica, whistle, flute or banjo, but we'll be just as happy if you pitch up with percussion (say, a triangle, tambourine, cajon, or snare and hi-hat) or a saxophone or an electronic piano. Reading music isn't necessary, though it definitely helps.

In addition to the classes we run tunes sessions (see the Sessions page) and in the spring and autumn also put on a dance in which the class is joined by friends to form a band to play for dancing.

Please tell your friends and especially anyone who's starting to play and really should know about these classes!

Thanks Les! With three workshops to prepare (and follow up) each month, anything that makes the homework easier is gratefully received.

Gavin
