Stewart and Frank will be holding a full day’s Mixed Instrument workshop in Tulse Hill on Sunday 26th May.
Stewart & Frank are both experienced and popular workshop leaders. Individually they teach regularly in their local communities – Frank on guitar at the Scots Music Group in Edinburgh, and Stewart with the North East Fiddle School in Newcastle, the Tyneside Fiddle Alliance in Gateshead, and across the UK with JSArts Fiddle and Mixed Instruments workshops. Together they combine their skills on their respective instruments, and enhance this with their experience of arranging material for performance, covering accompanying techniques, harmonies and overall narrative of the piece. Their relaxed and engaging approach is always encouraging, and focuses on what each participant needs out of a particular workshop.
Please get in touch if you are interested in receiving more details and an invitation to the workshop. All instruments are welcome, including those ‘less common’ in the folk music world who play in different keys.
