11th - 18th August 2017
There are loads of workshops that take place every Folk Week; 2017 is no exception - amongst the selection this year you will find :
Appalachian Clogging, Ballads & Broadsides, Concertina, Drumming, Ensemble Playing, Flatfooting, Guitar, Harmonies, Irish Tunes, Knitting, Longsword, Mandolin, Old Time Banjo, Percussion, Songwriting, Tai Chi, Ukulele, Violin , Whistles and Zulu Dancing. So lots of opportunities to learn something new or brush up existing skills; you name it - there's something for every generation and all abilities.
If you buy a Festival Ticket - they are included in the price. Book in advance online, or buy a ticket on the door - we can't remember ever turning anyone away from a Folk Week workshop.
Very often you will find the musicians who are on stage are teaching in the workshops - workshops sound very formal - but they're not. They are a place to join in and get encouragement in a friendly atmosphere. So why not try out a new skill, or brush upon an existing one.
