Playing For Morris Dancing Workshop – John Kirkpatrick

Shropshire

An event hosted and led by John Kirkpatrick.

Sunday 25th February 2024 in Bishops Castle, Shropshire. 

"Come and learn from somebody who has been Morris Dancing, playing for it, and thinking about it since he was twelve years old. After over 60 years, he must know something! This will mainly be useful for people who already play for this kind of dancing, but anybody who enjoys bashing out a tune will be most welcome. We aim to cover all styles of Morris Dancing. Acoustic instruments only, please - no electronics or percussion. Tuition will be both by ear and from printed music, which will be available in advance."
