Suffolk has a long history of traditional music and Suffolk Folk aim to keep it that way! We run a monthly workshop aimed at bridging the gap between playing at home and in public sessions. It also gives participants the experience of playing together as a band.
The workshops are designed to attract all age groups from youngsters upwards and all acoustic instruments able to play in the keys of D and G.
The music workshop, in a private room, (but with access to drinks from the bar!) are designed to help people become more confident playing traditional music socially, and are aimed at Beginners and Improvers. The tunes are played at a pace slow enough so that everyone can join in. They also cover playing as a band, helping with arrangements, harmonies/counter melodies and other dark mysteries.
The workshop is run by Suffolk Folk's Maggie Moore and Stan Bloor who play together in the folk band Pluck 'n' Squeeze. The cost is £2 and Suffolk Folk members get a 25% discount!
