We're now just over a month away from the second 'Albion to Appalachia' weekend at Halsway Manor, near Taunton in Somerset, which runs from Friday May 31st to Sunday June 2nd.
Sara Grey and Kieron Means from the USA, will be offering classes on Appalachian songs from British sources, and also on banjo and guitar, with a touch of the blues as well. Ben Paley, top UK old-time fiddler, will be giving instrumental classes throughout the weekend, with a session or two on song accompaniment. As a new attraction we have Kerry Fletcher giving instruction on Appalachian dance, while course organizer Brian Peters will lend a hand to classes on all kinds of topics including vocal harmony.
All the artists will appear in concert on the Saturday night, there will be evening sessions in the bar where we welcome you to sing and jam with the tutors, and you can bet there'll be a session in the garden if the weather's nice.
There are still a few places left, and residential accommodation and camping are available. It was a lot of fun last year, so come and join us!
