Musicians Workshop

MUSICIANS WORKSHOP – THURSDAY, 19TH OCTOBER 2017  7.15pm to 8.45pm

Northcliffe Church Hall, Hall Royd, Shipley, West Yorkshire BD18 3ED

We are holding a Musicians Workshop as we are currently looking to recruit fiddle players, guitarists and musicians who play other instruments which complement Bluegrass and Appalachian-type tunes.

Experience of playing Appalachian music is not essential but musicians must be competent players.

For further information, please call Paul on 07720 841452 or contact us through the website.

Hebden Bridge Dance Festival

HEBDEN BRIDGE DANCE FESTIVAL

SUNDAY, 22ND OCTOBER 2017

1:30pm Appalachian Beginners Workshop with “Fiddle ‘n’ Feet

If you would like to try out our style of dancing, please come and join us at our Workshop. Complete beginners are welcome and no experience is necessary.  Participants will be required to wear hard soled shoes or tap shoes.

Our workshop will commence with a performance of one of our dances.  We will then teach simple Appalachian steps from this dance which hopefully we will all perform at the end.  Accompanying music will be provided by our musicians, who play old time and bluegrass fiddle tunes.

Bookings commence in September.
