Brimfield Folk Club

roebuck inn brimfieldJust had the following update from Roger Penwill regarding the folk evening in Brimfield:

Following a change of landlord at the Roebuck Inn in Brimfield, the pub’s bar now houses a pool table, meaning there is no longer space for the Roebuckaneers Folk Club to meet.

We have therefore decanted to to the nearby Brimfield Village Hall and changed the club’s name to the somewhat less inventive but more appropriate Brimfield Folk Club.

We continue to meet at 8pm on the 1st Monday of each month with the same format as before. The entrance fee is now £1 and it’s bring your own drinks.  Contact and phone number is me as before, same number 01584 711854.

I’d be grateful if you would amend the club listing on the Bromyard Music Sessions site, please.

New England Dance Music Workshop

New England Dance Music workshop with Bruce Randall

Sun 8th Nov 11:00am – 5:00pm
Dark Horse, 145 Alcester Road, Moseley, B13 8JP

new england dance workshop

For over 200 years, the community contra-dance has been a feature in towns throughout New England.  What kind of music do they use?  Where does it come from?  How can we play it today?

BruceRandallCome and find out at a workshop led by traditional New England musician Bruce Randall.  We will play a number of the traditional standard tunes, as well as learn about the style and their usage for dancing, and how playing for dancing is different from playing for a “session.”

Suitable for all melodic and chordal instruments.  Music (melody line with chord names) will be provided.

Bruce Randall, of Haverhill, Massachusetts, plays for dances with the bands Calliope, Snow Date, Jump Start, and the Boston-area megaband Roaring Jelly.

He performs frequently at the New England Folk Festival, the Ralph Page Legacy Dance Weekend, the Down East Folk Festival, and in town halls throughout New England, and is looking forward to the opportunity to present this music to a new group of enthusiasts.

Tickets £30, available from 0121 247 3856 or wegottickets.com

Special offer £20 to Moseley Village Band members
