Do you walk into the session bar at Woodford and wish it was you, sawing away at your fiddle or playing guitar until your fingers are shredded? Or, are you already playing an instrument, but wanting to learn the tips and tricks that will help you sit into those sessions with greater ease?
On the last Saturday of each month the Woodfordia Traditional Music School provides an opportunity to learn from passionate teachers about the music and etiquette of playing in a traditional session. The school has emerged following the popularity of the Music Camp presented at the Woodford (Folk Festival) annually.
In 2024, a full year of lessons and tutors will be launched with various instruments and experience levels being catered for through local teachers and touring artists.
For those keen to get started and be ready to participate in sessions at the Woodford Folk Festival, the Traditional Music School will offer lessons on the last Saturday of the month from September to November this year.
