What we do

The Group

At 1 pm we have a workshop for instrumentalists who wish to go over tunes we will later play together.

Then at 2 pm we all join together and either play, sing, or just listen, in a sing-along of folk songs interspersed with solo, couple, or group turns from singers or instrumentalists who contribute to an enjoyable afternoon.

So far we have had the pleasure of the company of melodeon, fiddle, guitar, mandolin, concertina, flute, recorder and tin whistle players, some excellent solo singers and a back row chorus that join in with great enthusiasm.

Come along and join in. Refreshments at 3 pm. Charge £1.
