JOFAs a result of a second collaboration between Mardles.org and ‘Vintage Squeeze’, we are pleased to invite you to join us for an all day Folk Orchestra / Playing Together workshop for all instruments and aimed at all levels above absolute beginner. The workshop will be led by Jo Freya - a top ranking multi-instrumentalist and experienced tutor. For many years Jo has been a member of The Old Swan Band and Blowzabella. She is now also a member of Narthen and Moirai

For those considering coming to the workshop, it doesn't matter whether you play by ear or like to  look at the dots - Jo will skilfully turn the group into a Folk Orchestra by the end of the day and give professional tips throughout on how to improve your ability to play together. Jo will select suitable tunes and can provide notation for basic melodies and chord structures. The pieces chosen will be developed around those attending the workshop, taking account of their instruments, their skill level and any ideas they may bring to the event. All instruments are welcome, but it could be that due to restrictions of certain instruments, for example melodeons,  keys are likely to be restricted to D and G major. The music will be transposed for any Bb or Eb wind players.
