Three experienced instructors have been selected to bring specific skills:

Who is this workshop for?

These are beginners’ workshops. The instructors will assume that attendees have little or no experience on the instrument. If your ambition is to play arrangements, accompaniments, sessions, morris, barn dance/ceilidh, Irish, English or songs then the topics covered will provide a basic grounding to build on.

Is my concertina suitable?

The ideal instrument would be a C/G 30 button

Players of instruments in other keys (e.g. G/D Ab/Bb) will be able to follow the workshops playing as though their instrument is a C/G.

20 and 26 button instruments are suitable for many of the sessions
