Members of Moonrakers bring their exciting and dynamic folk music to this special Benslow Music project. Whether you play fiddle, fretted instruments, whistles, flute, or simply like to sing, you’re welcome on this course. We’ll have parts for any instrument you bring. We’ll work through a variety of arrangements of folk tunes and songs throughout the day. You don’t need to read music, but some instrumental or vocal experience is required. Your principal tutors are Jon Bennett (guitar, bouzouki, ukulele, whistles) and Liz van Santen (fiddle, concertina). The day workshop will conclude with a short concert from the course participants’ folk orchestra showcasing the musical achievements of the day, and members of Moonrakers will also play a few tunes. This informal concert will also be open to family and friends. If you have any questions about this, call 01865 769206 or 07914 79 5823
