A group workshop for folk musicians


Love playing folk music, and want the next step up? Come and meet like-minded people, have a go and learn some new skills along the way! We'll learn a couple of tunes, have fun with arrangements and musical games to make our playing sparkle. We'll also include tips and tricks you can take home to make your pieces your own.

Tutor Steph West has been running workshops for over ten years in a variety of settings and is here to make your morning go with a swing! Previously she's worked with Shooting Roots, EFDSS and Guildhall's CYM, as well as harp specialists the Clarsach Society.
