Halsway Melodeon/Leveret weekend
« on: June 07, 2019, 12:20:20 PM »

Just wondered who else is going to be at one (or both!) of the upcoming workshop weekends at Halsway, which promise to be fantastic. I'm sure there'll be a few familiar faces, but I'm terrible at remembering names so apologies in advance for when I inevitably fail..!

Just got a cancellation for the D/G weekend, so will be there.
Was going to do the Leveret weekend this year instead, but chickened out!

It's either the slow one, the fast one, the minor one or the one that goes... :|glug

I'll be at the Leveret weekend.
I've really benefited from the Melodeon weekends at Halsway over the last two years but I want to learn to play with other musicians so it had to be the Leveret weekend. And you don't need to read music..... phew..  ::)
It'd be great to meet up with other Melnetters.

Just the Leveret weekend for us this year.  I must admit I'm finding melodeon-only weekends less and less enjoyable these days.

Ah well... sorry to be missing you both at the DG Weekend.
No doubt we'll bump into one another at a festival.
Cheers.

yes, though I won't be on the bar this year, life's sort of getting in the way...…
If not, Warwick or Shrewsbury??

Oh dear. Just described myself as an 'advanced' player for the melodeon weekend.
 Is it too late to get practicing ? ::)

:D
I felt very overfaced describing myself as intermediate last, but it didn't matter. Nobody is going to check up.
Enjoy the weekend. I would love to  go, but mywife  has a significant birthday

I've seen and heard you play. Definitely advanced. Fortunately at Wensleydale, the Intermediate and Advanced were the same groups. Enjoy the weekend.

I’ve been involved as an an admin at many music events over the years and it’s very common to find that good players underestimate their ability, and that less good players often overestimate theirs!  If in doubt contact the event organiser for guidance.

Thanks for the comments ! Playing the Keel Row a dozen times in a cold damp derelict Iron Works wasn't good for my morale yesterday evening. (At least I didn't allow the drips from the holes in the roof to land on the bellows...)

I reckon small steps in progress just get harder with advancing years (and frustration increases). Should have really applied myself years ago - but it's never too late. And workshop weekends always help.

Yes, in this case it's perhaps best not to look.
