Melodeon Playgroup VI - the original Melodeon Playgroup returns
« on: October 26, 2017, 10:09:25 PM »

Posting on behalf of self, Lester, Jules, Dunny & Malcolm.

Yes! We're back. The Playgroup Elves have been beavering away of late, working to bring you the sixth iteration of Melodeon Playgroup. Full details to follow in the coming days but for now, to whet your appetite we can reveal that we'll be returning to the wonderful Fleece Inn in Bretforton with a weekend of squeezy loveliness for the very newest melodeon players right through to intermediate level players looking to hone their skills.

The dates for next year are February 16th - 18th. The main event as usual takes place on Saturday with additional informal sessions taking place Friday night and a chance to stay on and play for Belle D'Vain dancing on the Sunday.

I'll be updating the website shortly but for now any updates can be found on our Facebook page.

See you there!  :|||:

Bless you, Elves. You even picked a weekend in February which doesn't clash with the Rugby.

Helena, you Elves always get everything right for this superb weekend. A few of us were secretly hoping that you might avoid the Rugby but this original Playgroup would always be top bill for me. You didn't need to admit it was an accident - just act knowingly smug.
By the way. I wondered what you had done to yourself on viewing your miniature photograph on the Play Group facebook and then realised that you were just dressing up :-). This comment might draw even more people onto the facebook site!

Just a quick update on progress really - places at Melodeon Playgroup VI are filling up fast.  We do try not to turn anyone away on the day but to be on the safe side if you are thinking of coming please pre-register via our Facebook page or website (linked in my signature below) and let us know if you are a beginner or improver. Adding an email address or contact phone number helps us too - we won't spam you but may need to contact you with updates etc.

Melodeon Playgroup VI, now with added sign up form to make Malcolm's life easier in managing ye olde spreadsheete.

We don't take formal bookings or require payment of deposits but it is really helpful if you let us know you're coming and which class you'll be attending, similarly if you find you can't come after registering your interest do drop us a line and let us know.  It all helps with the plannin' an' stuff.

Beginners Kit

This year we will be working on the tune in the attached pdf, there is only the A music as we will be learning the B musics by ear  :o

Fear not they are easy/well known tunes but will hopefully help you with developing ear skills.

The final task for this year.

Melodeon Playgroup is not-for-profit, we donate any monies left over to a charity, normally a charity supported by our hosts The Fleece Inn.
This year it is a local charity based in Evesham, the Tracy Sollis Leukaemia Trust. We made a donation of £57, from everyone at Melodeon Playgroup 2018.
