            Dave Townsend is one of the leading figures in the revival of Sacred Harp & West Gallery singing. His work with the Mellstock Band, performing, recording, publishing & teaching, is hugely influential. He is also a virtuoso English concertina player & fiddler. He runs the superb Hands-On Music Weekends at Witney, Oxfordshire.             The workshop is for singers. Music reading is helpful but not essential.
