This group was formed in 2012. We meet fortnightly on Thursdays between 10am and 12 noon in the small room at Cliburn Village Hall.
Sessions cost between £1 – £2 depending on how many people turn up.
The group is essentially a workshop. We play Folk Music from any country, mostly British Isles. It is not suitable for absolute beginners but any instrument is welcome; and we sing too!
We start by playing the previous week’s tunes. We learn a new tune from the music (most folk tunes are not copyright) or by ear. Anyone can bring a tune along for us to play; otherwise the co-ordinator provides one. There is a break half way through for tea and biscuits.
We finish by revisiting whatever we want, or anyone can play a solo if they want, before we decide which tunes we are going to practise for the following week.
