Lewes tunes sessions in June

LEWES BLACK HORSE TUNES SESSION
SUNDAY 5th. JUNE,  noon- 2.30 p.m.
Black Horse, 55 Western Road, Lewes BN7 1RS
Bryan Creer leads on English concertina & fiddle. There is ample parking in the grounds of County Hall opposite.

JOHN HARVEY TUNES SESSION
TUESDAY 7th. JUNE,  8.00 - 11.00 PM
John Harvey Tavern, Bear Yard, Lewes BN7 2AN (opposite Harveys Brewery in Cliffe High Street)
If you'd like to lead one of these sessions, which are always on the first Tuesday of the month, let me know. You can set your own guidelines if you want to, such as asking people to play the first time through a tune on their own or insisting on no more than two polka sets in succession.

CONCERTINAS ANONYMOUS  
TUESDAY 14th. JUNE, 8.00 - 11.00 PM
ELEPHANT & CASTLE CLUB-ROOM, Elephant & Castle, White Hill, Lewes BN7 2DJ www.elephantandcastlelewes.co.uk/
This is Bryan Creer's regular free session for concertina players of all systems and abilities on the second Tuesday of the month. 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. If you'd like some music in advance, let Bryan (bryancreer_at_aol_dot_com) or me know.

LEWES FAVOURITES ENGLISH TUNES PRACTICE SESSION
TUESDAY 28th. JUNE, 8.00 - 11.00 PM
ELEPHANT & CASTLE CLUB-ROOM, Elephant & Castle, White Hill, Lewes BN7 2DJ www.elephantandcastlelewes.co.uk/
This is the free practice on the fourth Tuesday of the month 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 Saturday Folk Club website www.lewessaturdayfolkclub.org/
People are also welcome to bring tunes they'd like us all to try.
