We are delighted that the FolkActive Youth Ensemble (FAYE) is continuing online through lockdown, and is attracting new members! Here’s our latest video, which went live in December 2020.
The ensemble began in spring 2019 with string players of Grade 3 standard or above, and we are now opening membership to other instruments. Please contact us for details – we hope to have room for you!
The ensemble is led by Chris Nichols of Threepenny Bit
Tunes are taught by ear and then used to explore the stylistic details in the playing of folk music as well as spontaneous use of harmony and variation. Tunes and handouts are sent out after the sessions.
Sessions are run over Google Meet once a month on a Sunday morning, from 10 to 11am.
Spring Term dates for 2021:
31st January, 14th February, 7th March, 28th March
Cost is £5 a session and payment details will be given after registering.
If cost is a barrier to attending, please contact us to discuss.
