Well, Tommy Peoples has come to South East England, and gone again, and a very remarkabe experience it has been for both musicians and dedicated listeners like myself.
Thanks to all from SEFAN that supported the events - there was a capacity crowd of 120 at the concert the London Irish Centre, the Lewes workshop and folk evening were sold out a month in advance (20 students / 50 folk respectively), the Littlebourne barn workshop attracted 15 students, and there were over 150 at the concert.
I have just put up a photo-report of Tommy Peoples' tour on the web :


Fiddlers Various 2005 was intended to showcase as many different fiddle genres as possible with 7 fiddlers playing in about a dozen differenent genres :

2007 concentrated solely on Celtic music, with the workshops, session and concert by Saskia Tomkins and Steafan Hannigan in April acting as a run-up to Tommy Peoples' workshop and concert.

So, if I do a Fiddlers Various 2009, what genres would you like it to cover ?
