Terry Warrington, in Peterborough. French Dance music enthusiast, with his wife Florence, and artistic maker of many instruments, mainly folk.
I've been using some instruments he made for my schools workshops (fiddle, psaltery, cittern) for years now & they've stood up remarkably well. They had one or two engineering surprises, but they have worked well & have been subjected to lots of children.
I can't speak for his gurdy engineering, as I haven't played one of his for ages. Visually , it's typical Terry - very nice to look at indeed.
I believe he goes regularly to the Ketton sessions, near Stamford, if you want to meet the maker!
We rarely get there, I regret, but the last circular I got reads:
Friday 19th Nov
Ketton French Dance is back in the Northwick Arms this coming Friday 19th November. Andrew, the landlord, and a great cook, is serving meals from 6 onwards. Maybe see you then and join us.
Northwick Arms, High Street, Ketton PE9 3TA
8 – 9 pm Dance tuition. 9 – 11 pm Bal
Traditional French dancing - Waltz, Mazurka, Schottische, Bourree etc.
Dancers and musicians of any level always welcome. We normally have up to 10 musicians, 40 dancers and others who like to just come and watch. Help is always on hand so just come and listen or try it out.
Best of luck,
