In Session at The Courthouse

A traditional folk session for young musicians

Courthouse logoWhenever folk musicians get together, at folk festivals, in pubs, in each others’ homes, they enjoy playing tunes with each other. It’s one of the ways the folk tradition is kept alive, with people sharing and swapping tunes, trying out tunes from old books, listening to how other people play and just enjoying making music together.

In Session will introduce and build a repertoire of popular session tunes that you’re likely to hear at festivals and sessions, and help you to find your own way of playing them.

Folk sessions are a great way to develop your playing and listening skills and make music with other people in a relaxed and informal setting.

We’ll learn tunes by ear and work at a pace that’s comfortable for everyone. Suitable for anyone who plays an acoustic instrument from Grade II and up. Most of the tunes will be in concert D or G. Audio files will be available to help you learn the tunes.

As we go on we hope you’ll start finding your own tunes to bring along to the group.

Fridays from 4p.m – 5.30pm starting January 23rd 2015
The Courthouse, Leigh Road, Eastleigh SO50 9QL

There’s a big car park behind The Courthouse which makes life easy for dropping off and picking up, as well as a cafe inside.

Sessions are free this term!
