The National Folk Festival and Beyond
We're all off to the National Folk Festival, to absorb the wall-to-wall tunes in the session bar. Nicole and John are playing as cloudstreet (www.cloudstreet.org), and launching the new cd, The Circus of Desires. (Which features one of our tunes-class tunes, Willie Coleman's)
So, NO TUNES CLASS ON WEDNESDAY 31 MARCH. And no class on the following Wednesday, April 7, either, as many people will still be travelling.
See you all for a further fix of tunes on April 14. Happy Easter with lots of jigs and reels!
Wednesdays, 7pm-9pm, Maleny Presbyterian Hall, Cedar Street. $12 includes supper.
If you can pick out a tune on your instrument and would like to learn some traditional repertoire, you're ready to join the class! Maleny Tunes Class students play a range of instruments including flute, whistle, mandolin, fiddle and concertina.
Tunes are taught slowly, by ear, and half-way through the evening we enjoy a well-deserved supper and chat.
We welcome new players. To get the most out of the class, you should know the names of the notes on your instrument, and be able to play at least a D major and G major scale and a melody or two. If you need help to improve your skills, why not book in with Nicole for a private lesson or two! (0410 715 787)
