Once again, Shooting Roots is putting together a terrific programme for the YOUNG FOLK of Broadstairs Folk Week - thank you! Meet the team and kick off with some introductory workshops on Sunday then workshops every day finishing with an amazing show on Friday afternoon:
Band (8-12) - Play an instrument? Ever wanted to try being in a band? We'll teach the tunes, help with arrangements and prepare you for a spot in the Showcase!
Band (13-17) - For older students. More complex melodies, more involved harmonies, bring an instrument and make sweet music.
Song (8-12) - We've a wide selection of jaunty, jolly tunes to teach. Some are rounds, some lend themselves to harmonies. Some have actions! Whatever you end up learning, we'll put into Friday's spectacular showcase
Song (13-17) - Learn to harmonise and arrange. It doesn't matter if you're a complete beginner because you'll still sound better than SRoots director Calum Anderson! (Calum is thankfully not teaching this workshop)
Theatre & Craft (8-17) - Help recount a twisted tale in SRoots' signature style! We'll be making the skeleton around which songs, tunes and dances are built into the showcase. There'll be bits for the older folks, bits for the young 'uns and bits involving everyone all at once!
Morris - Evening Morris workshops at the campsite are back! Finish off your day (or warm-up for the evening) with some jumping, hopping, stomping and stick-smashing
PLUS We have Crafty Workshops - the Hobby Horse Club at the Bandstand; Family Ceilidhs, Children's Country Dancing; Circus Skills with Mark and Panic Circus; The Just Imagine Hour and the Children's Special Show.
and not forgetting Tiddley Folk - songs and music for the very young, magic shows with Mr Trix, and storytime at the Campsite and at the Bandstand
Why not join the CLARENCE AND FRIENDS CLUB - it costs just £5 a year for newsletters from Clarence and an invitaton to the annual Folk Week picnic with Clarence and his horsy friends! Join up at the Hobby Horse Club during the festival.
So whatever age you are - there's plenty to do!
