Melodeons in Wensleydale 2021
« on: March 21, 2020, 09:37:55 PM »

In these dark times, here is something to look forward to next year. Melodeons in Wensleydale is booked to take place at the Dales Countryside Museum in Hawes for the weekend of 23-25 April 2021. The main tutors will be Andy Cutting, John Spiers, Katie Howson and Emmanuel Pariselle. Theo Gibb, Rees Wesson, Vicky Cooper and myself will also be leading mini-workshops and Pete Ward will be bringing his mouthwatering Acorn Instruments goodies. Booking will open on 1 November, so make a note of the date if you are interested and keep the weekend of 23-25 April 2021 free.

I would expect so. Discussions with the main tutors about the workshops they will offer have not yet begun, but it is likely that Vicky Cooper will offer the Introduction to G/C Melodeon mini-workshop she would have delivered this year and that one of Emmanuel Pariselle's workshops will be G/C based.

That's great - my current project is getting to grips with the G/C I bought from Emmanuel last year. With plenty of time on my hands and a whole year ahead I might make some progress !

Those of us with retained deposits from this year’s cancelled event are automatically enrolled I believe.

Elderly amateur musician hoping to stave off dementia by learning to play the melodeon.  Main instrument a Tommy, also D/G and G/C pokerworks,  a single row 2 stop Hohner, and a new addition to the free reedery, a rather splendid Paolo Soprani four voice 120 bass c-system chromatic button accordion.  Very shiny, very loud, and about the same size and weight as a small car.  Now I’ve traded me Benny with (ahem) a cash adjustment, to a three voice 60 bass Castagnari K3.

That's great news Bob, thank you to you and the rest of the MIW team. What a line-up (as always)!

PS, I've bought a few cds and bits of pieces from some of the tutors who were due to be there this year, and recommend that as a way to support our pro-melodeonistas.  I'm also really enjoying John Spiers' youtube channel - some inspirational examples of playing  for ceilidhs.

Yes, Chris, that is correct.
