   Emmanuel is one of the best melodeon players in France, a singer & an expert in French regional dance music. He also plays a specially-designed 'Franglo' concertina. He has taught at Hands-On Music & regularly leads melodeon-building weeks for EATMT in Suffolk. Richard, originally from Kent, sings & plays guitar & English concertina. He has spent all his adult life in Norway & is a key figure in the country's folk music scene, drawing on Scandinavian & English traditions.
   The workshop will focus on learning tunes, chiefly from South-Western France & some from the Norwegian-Swedish border, placing them in their cultural contexts & looking especially at different strategies for chordal & rhythmic accompaniment.
Some music will be sent out in advance.
