Saturday fiddle workshops in Craven Arms

A new season of Saturday fiddle workshops returns to Craven Arms in September. The Saturday Coffee Sessions will run once a month at the Discovery Centre SY7 9RS, 10.30 am to 12.45 pm.
Autumn dates: September 28th, October 19th, November 16th, December 7th
Enjoy playing traditional fiddle tunes in fresh arrangements with two or three-part harmony. These monthly workshops combine sociable ensemble playing with expert tuition: technical tips, advice on style, ornaments and bowing patterns plus a strong emphasis on developing musicality and confidence within the group. Sheet music provided (in advance), or play by ear, whichever you prefer.
Places must be booked in advance, £15 per workshop/ £55 for all 4. For full details please contact Kitty Greenwood: folkfiddleteacher@gmail.com 01584 841564
