Discover the fun of playing folk music with other people in monthly workshops- usually on the third Sunday of each month, and 8 times per year.  See exact dates on Workshops page.

Learn tunes and chords, experiment with arrangements and enjoy an informal performance.  Our workshop leader will help you build confidence to learn and play new tunes by ear.

Upcoming workshop dates: 

I am sad to announce that we have had to cancel the workshop that was due to take place on Sunday 19th April 2020.  We will make a decision about the workshop in May nearer the time.  We hope to see you soon.

Hannah is a professional local musician who is experience in both public performance and music teaching to all levels and ages.

Each session, Hannah teaches new tunes and harmonies and experiment with arrangements. More than anything, the aim of the workshops is to have fun and have a great time playing music together.
