Panards Dansants festival at Otley, October 14th-16th

Postby paulsherwood6 » Sun Oct 09, 2011 9:42 pm

Hi All,

Just a little plug about the Panards Dansants festival at Otley in West Yorkshire which is on next weekend 14th-16th October.

It features French and Breton music with Naragonia, Quercus, Yves Leblanc, Bernard Loffet, Steve Turner andYannick Minvielle-Debat and dance teaching from Kerry Fletcher

I will be playing for the bal with Lancaster band Quercus on Friday night, and running two Hurdy-gurdy workshops on Saturday, a beginners one in the morning, and one for intermediate players in the afternoon. Intermediate in this case is not meant to imply a particularly high level. We will look mainly at some 2-time bourrées, learning some fairly simple tunes, variations and trompette accompaniment. I'll choose tunes suitable for D/G and G/C instruments (ie we'll play in G).

Workshop programme is here: ... Inside.pdf

It would obviously be nice to see some of you there!


Sorry for duplication for those of you who are signed up to both boards.

Would really love to be with you all Paul, but afraid it cannot be done this year.

Wishing you a great time at Otley anyway.

Regards to all
