Traditional music events – September

August 28, 2010 by General Administrator

From the Traditional Arts Team:

Hope you all had a good summer break and are looking forward to lots of music activities in the autumn!

On Sunday 5 September there’s a free tune arranging workshop with Louisa Davies and Peter Churchill of the band Elfynn at the Bulls Head from 11am to 12:30pm. They will teach a simple tune and then look at ways of making it more interesting, exploring rhythms, chords, instrumentation and harmony. Suitable for all instruments including percussion – bring your instruments along! This is part of the Moseley Folk Festival but you don’t need a festival ticket for the workshop.

On Sunday 12 September the Moseley Village Band will be playing from 2:00-2:30pm at the Waterhall Gallery in Birmingham as part of ArtsFest. This group of musicians meets twice a month to make music together and explore the style and repertoire of the English village music tradition. We welcome all musicians to our meetings at St Columba’s Church Hall in Moseley at 7:30pm on the second and fourth Thursday of each month.

The next traditional music session will be at 8pm on Sunday 19 September at the Prince of Wales pub, Alcester Road, Birmingham B13 8EE, when all are welcome to enjoy playing and listening to English, Scottish & Irish folk music and song.

And if you like dancing to traditional music, there will be a ceilidh with live music from Cuckoo’s Nest, caller Alex McClure at 8pm on Saturday 18 September at the Holy Name Parish Centre, 9 Cross Lane, Great Barr, Birmingham, B43 6LN. Tickets £6 from Val Comery 0121 358 2502

Best wishes – Pam
