10am - 3pm
Expert melodeon player Simon Care is back with another chance to try the small but mighty squeezebox, with instruments provided so beginners can have their first go. Drawing on traditional English dance tunes, the workshop will introduce basic technique, how to play with rhythm and feel and how to play with other musicians.
The day is for anyone with an interest in English folk music and dance or who just wants to try a squeezebox for the first time. You do not need to be able to read music notation and no previous squeezebox or folk music experience is required, but a basic knowledge of music (e.g. scales, chords, time signatures) will help.
