– a Northumbrian version of a lovely Irish tune which was popularised in the North East of England by ’The Shepherds’ (Willie Taylor, Will Atkinson and Joe Hutton). This gives us a chance to look at some articulation and bowing techniques used in the playing of jigs in the Northumbrian tradition.

Arrangement Techniques for Mixed Instruments

25th – 27th February 2022
Rydal Hall, Ambleside LA22 9LX

This course is currently fully booked, but please get in touch if you would like to go onto the waiting list.

Join Stewart in the beautiful setting of Rydal Hall in the Lake District, for a weekend of exploring new tunes and creating arrangements. The workshop will be limieted to 8 people and will run from 3 pm on Friday until 3 pm on Sunday afternoon. It is open to players of any instrument (including transposing instruments) and is aimed at a broad range of abilities from intermediate to advanced. Workshops focus on techniques for arranging tunes for the combination of instruments to hand, using tools such as tempo, texture, dynamics and harmonic structure to create a musical narrative. To enjoy the full benefits of these courses, participants should be able to read notation or confidently and quickly pick up tunes and musical ideas by ear. We will aim to create well-mixed groups by monitoring the instrumentation as participants sign up for the course. All tuition, resources, accommodation, food and daytime refreshments are included. Sheet music and mp3 files of the tunes covered are sent out in advance, and any recordings from the course are sent on to you afterwards.

For further information or to express your interest in this course, please email Ali (jsarts@stewarthardy.co.uk)
