Dear Everyone,
 
LEWES FAVOURITES: TUNES SUPPLEMENTS
 
Andy Warburton has now produced two supplements of tunes current in local English sessions: one is of a further 32 favourites, and the other a selection of tunes from Scan Tester's repertoire. They available to anyone coming to a practice session, but not to order by post as we only have a limited number; we'd prefer people to buy a copy for the princely sum of 30p and then make copies themselves by what Andy engagingly terms 'furtive reproduction'. You can also download them from the club website http://www.lewesarmsfolkclub.org/ (note new address) in Noteworthy Composer, abc and midi.
 
LEWES FAVOURITES ENGLISH TUNES PRACTICE SESSIONS

If you would like to play English dance music, here is an opportunity to meet other players to learn and swap tunes regardless of what instrument you play, to what standard, and whether or not you read music. This will be a chance to nail down some of those tunes that you recognise when you hear them but can't quite remember, to put the names to familiar tunes, and to play them over slowly until you are sure of them. Printed music and computer software are available for 180 of the Lewes area's favourite tunes.
The tunes are now available as a book, price 10, illustrated with dance notations from Sussex manuscripts, anecdotes, photographs of the habitats where they flourish and an index of the combinations in which they are often played.  You can also download them from the club website http://www.lewesarmsfolkclub.org/ (note new address) in Noteworthy Composer, abc and midi. Discreet tape recorders are welcome if you don't read music. We meet in the upstairs room of the Lewes Arms, Mount Place, Lewes, at 8.00 pm on the following evenings (all Wednesdays except where marked):

2007: 19th. December
2008: 15th. January (TUESDAY) 12th. February (TUESDAY) 19th. March 16th. April
21st. May 18th. June 16th. July 20th. August
