Spring harpa gathering

23/03/2015 in News

Sadly, we can't go ahead with a weekend on 11/12 April. The pub venue is no longer available. Sorry it's taken so long to get back to you all, but these things do take time to organise - especially as we're chasing free venues. Many thanks to Edwin for his invaluable help with this one!
There's a chance we may be able to book something with the Prince of Wales in the autumn.
It's not all doom and gloom... there may be a possible alternative for the weekend 6/7 June in a pretty country pub just outside Chelmsford. Fingers crossed the date doesn't clash with any festivals or bals...
Let me know if you might be interested and I'll pursue the lead.

Nyckelharpa weekend 16-17 May in the French Alps

12/03/2015 in News

I thought you might like to know about a nyckelharpa/fiddle weekend (other instruments possible, but contact the organisers first) taking place in the French Alps at Thorens-Glieres, not far from Annecy, on Sat-Sun 16-17 May 2015. The tutors will be Josefina Paulson and Jonas Akerlund. There will be workshops all day Saturday and Sunday morning with a bal on Sunday afternoon, and a concert on Saturday evening in the local village cinema followed by a Swedish film. Further information from Claire Fillard: Tel : 04 50 22 80 60
Or I can forward her email to you if you contact me - If you need help with a bit of French, I can probably assist.

It's a lovely location and a great place to spend a few days walking in the alps before or after the weekend.
