Folk Music

Group: Folk Music

Meets: Third Wednesday at 2pm

Venue: Private House Tonbridge

Details:

The purpose of this group is to explore the ‘folk’ music of the British Isles (and beyond).

Both novice and more skilful players, those with an interest in playing and/or singing traditional music, will be very welcome. (I am a novice/intermediate mandolin player myself.)

Some ability to read music could be useful, though a good ‘ear’ would also be useful as an alternative.

Some knowledge of the genre might be helpful, but I have a small library of appropriate music, into which I hope we can delve for inspiration and guidance.

I am always open to suggestions for practice pieces and even to explore other related genres at these meetings.

NB - enthusiastic individuals might arrange private practice sessions together if they chose once we’ve gotten underway.
