CONCERTINAS ANONYMOUS
LEWES ARMS CLUB-ROOM, MONDAY 4TH. FEBRUARY, 8.00 - 11.00 PM
This is Bryan Creer's regular free session for concertina players of all systems and abilities. What happens depends largely on who turns up, but there's usually some part-playing at some stage and a few session tunes get severely beaten up.
   
LEWES FAVOURITES ENGLISH TUNES PRACTICE SESSION, LEWES ARMS CLUB-ROOM, TUESDAY 12TH. FEBRUARY, 8.00 - 11.00 PM
We are meeting on the second Tuesday of the month in February to make way for Lewes Arms pantomime rehearsals.
This is the monthly free practice for anyone wanting to practice tunes popular in local English sessions on any instrument. Andy Warburton has compiled two unbound supplements, one of a further 33 trendy tunes and another with a small selection of Scan Testerís material; both are available to people coming to the practice sessions for the not unreasonable sum of £30p, but limited to one copy per person. They can also be downloaded from the Lewes Arms Folk Club website, and I can now email them to you as PDFs on request.
ALISTAIR ANDERSON: WORKSHOP ON NORTHUMBRIAN MUSIC FOR ANY INSTRUMENT, LEWES ARMS, SATURDAY 15TH. MARCH
The workshop is sold out but we are keeping a waiting list in case of cancellations. Advance tickets for Alistairís evening performance at the Lewes Arms are still available through the website or from me at £6 each.
Tootle pip,
Valmai
