About the event

Through a focus on folk music, song and dance, Get Your Folk On! courses offer young musicians and/or dancers the chance to improve on their performance and playing.

Please note that this is a week long course which runs daily from Monday 13 – Friday 17 August, 10.30am – 4.30pm.

Skills gained include:

- playing music by ear - no sheet music here!

- exploring harmonies, riffs, chord sequences and folk techniques

- creating arrangements in small and big bands

- singing and exploring folk song history and culture

- trying new instruments or dance forms

- gaining performance skills with final sharing events

Courses are friendly, flexible and responsive to all young people’s needs and abilities, led by a team of skilled and engaging folk educators. No previous folk experience is required and no two courses are the same!
