Stonehaven Folk Festival (7-9 July) is full steam ahead with only 7 weeks to go. Ticket sales are going well and there has been a lot of interest all over the UK and even in Germany. The website has now been updated to include the workshop programme. Bigger than ever before and covering almost everything – Song writing, Tune arranging, Tune accompaniment, Flute, Fiddle (lost of different styles and tutors), Clarsach, Bodhran and Accordion. Most tutors will be drawn from artists performing at the festival, such as Nuala Kennedy (flute). They will cover all abilities and although most are aimed at existing players there are several absolute beginner/come and try sessions as well. There is also a Children/family session with storyteller Pauline Cordiner covering Stories and songs, mostly from the North East of Scotland.
Full details are still to be added to the website but we hope the list will whet your appetite for this July. Most workshops are £10, Children’s sessions £1. Online booking for workshops is still to go live.
