Friday 29th April - Sunday 1st May 2022
Derwent Hill, Portinscale, Nr Keswick, CA12 5RD.
Two outstanding folk musicians lead a unique weekend of folk music, song and banter with time for walking.
A mixed weekend of ensemble playing, singing, instrumental tuition and informal sessions with time for fell walking too. It all takes place at the Derwent Hill Centre, near Keswick in the beautiful Lake District. It’s a great way to enjoy yourself, learn some new material and meet new friends.
It begins late afternoon/early evening Friday, finishing Sunday around 5pm. Tutors: Dave Wood, who can provide tuition in Guitar, Ukulele and Voice with celebrated Cumbrian folk singer Holly Clarke, Voice and Guitar. An intimate event with around 20 participants. A mixture of classes, performance and steady sessions. The two classes will be in mixed ensembles each doing something different with both tutors including voices as well as mixed instruments. Don’t worry if you can’t sing well because there will be plenty of playing. Likewise, there will be good opportunities for singers to shine. We welcome a wide range of acoustic instruments.
All on site rooms are now taken. We can accommodate a very small number of participants who arrange and pay for their own bed and breakfast accommodation - there are several in Portinscale. Tuition, lunch, dinner, snacks and daytime/evening attendance are included. £260pp.
Please note that onsite camping or camper vans are not permitted under the terms of our booking.
