Past Events 

SAT 18 JANUARY 2020 -  Workshop - how to play in a 'Session' 

BURTON IN KENDAL. 


Twelve of us had a lovely morning with Susan Lambert, learning how to play session tunes. Whether you want to join in a pub session but aren’t confident, or go to a session at e.g. Edinburgh festival, this was the session for you.

Susan concentrated on 2 well-known tunes, Mairi’s wedding and John Ryan’s Polka. The tunes were learnt first from memory and then with notes, and then Susan bombarded everyone (very nicely!) with lots of advice on what to do with the left hand. She ran through typical chord progressions and how to use them in any key. Everyone came away having learnt lots of new things, and hopefully gained the confidence to join in a session.
