Don't know how genuine this is but have been asked to pass it on...Geoff
Dear Sir or Madame,
I write you with the request to pass this information to people that might be interested.
I’m organizing an international hurdy gurdy workshop, that will take place in France from the 16th to the 24th of april 2011. It’s dedicated to instrument makers and musicians of hurdy gurdies, but only to people who are non-professional (the definition is that they have another job beside). Thanks to the financing of the European Union, the whole workshop as well as travel costs and accomodation are free.
Now we’re still searching for two participants. We already have participants from Spain, Italy, Hongary, France and Germany. The workshop will be lead by people as Oscar Fernandez, Patrick Bouffard, Jan Dau Melhau and Gregory Jolivet.
The working language is English.
Here you will find the description of the project in English:http://www.myspace.com/europeviellearoue/blog/541265500
And here is the program of the workshop: http://www.cultures-traditions.org/site ... lais_1.pdf
Thank you very much for your help!
