A Workshop Day and Evening Session led by Ray Langton. The workshop will give an opportunity for participants to expand their folk session repertoire and play tunes in ‘sets’.

The Workshop Day will run on Sunday 17th September 2017 at Hadnall Village Hall, Shropshire SY4 5RP and will be followed by a traditional style music session in the New Inn, Hadnall. The cost for the event will be £25.00, which includes music, simple sandwich lunch plus tea/coffee.

The workshop day is for players of all instruments who can already play some folk tunes on their instruments and provides the opportunity to learn new tunes and sets of tunes suitable for playing in sessions. Written notation will be provided in advance suitable for all instruments, from squeezeboxes to brass! These tunes will be fun to learn and fun to play with other people.

Ray Langton, leader of the workshop day, said “I am currently sorting through a fabulous pile of ‘classic’ sets of jigs, polkas, waltzes and hornpipes for us to learn together during the day. There is going to be some great music happening”.

The Workshop Day will be followed by a relaxed Evening Session in the convivial surroundings of The New Inn at Hadnall by kind permission of the landlord. All attendees are invited to join in from approximately 7.30 pm when the tunes learnt during the day will form part of the repertoire, with perhaps some additional surprises! This session is open to all comers and even if they have not attended during the day, so dust off your instrument and come along and join in!

Pre- booking for the Workshop Day is essential and additional information and the booking form can be obtained by emailing ray.langton@talk21.com
