Cambridgeshire’s county youth ceilidh band are hosting a specialist day of workshops looking at all things folk music and we have invited one of the UK’s top guitarists, Ian Stephenson (KAN, Kathryn Tickell Band, 422), and fiddling ceilidh partner Sophy Ball (422) down from Newcastle to share their expertise. Ian, a folk degree tutor at Newcastle University, and Sophy also an experienced tutor will spend the day working through tunes from all over the British Isles, focusing on melody techniques as well as accompaniment and harmonising. We’ll also be looking at composing tunes and improvising and the day will finish with a final concert, incorporating the work from the day’s session as well as performance opportunities for all the folk groups taking part. We’d like to invite you along to join us for this exiting and unique event fully funded by Youth Music and organised by Cambridgeshire Music Service.
