Workshops

There are loads of workshops that take place during Folk Week; we will put a download on this page as soon as times have been finalised. What we can say is that in 2017 workshops will include

Appalachian Clogging,  Ballads & Broadsides, Concertina,  Drumming, Ensemble Playing, Flatfooting,  Guitar, Harmonies, Irish Tunes, Knitting, Longsword, Mandolin, Old Time Banjo, Percussion, Songwriting, Tai Chi, Ukulele, Violin and Whistles.    So lots of opportunities to learn something new or brush up existing skills; you name it - there's something for every generation and all abilities.  

If you buy a Festival Ticket - they are included in the price. Or you can just buy a ticket on  the door - we can't remember ever turning anyone away from a Folk  Week workshop.

Very often you will find the musicians who are on stage are teaching in the workshops - workshops sound very formal - but they're not. They are a place to join in and get encouragement in a friendly atmosphere.
