Traditional music classes, Horsmonden
« on: October 07, 2011, 07:36:46 AM »

The next class is on the evening of Wednesday 12th October and the music is now up on the website at http://frittendenfestival.com/free-traditional-music-classes-at-the-gun-and-spitroast-horsmonden/: the tunes are: Astley's Ride, Over the Hills and Far Away, The Moon and Seven Stars.

Please let me know if anyone would like to be on the mailing list for these events - I no longer have all the class regulars' email addresses due to shenanigans with Yahoo. Please everyone, contact me at gmatkin@gmail.com.

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 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.

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 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 electronic piano. Reading music isn't necessary, though it definitely helps!

nice choice of tunes. I could probably play all of them, bit far for me though!
