Keith Kendrick & Sylvia Needham, on tour from the UK, present an evening concert of English ballads, songs, and music in Montague Center, MA, on June 18, 2016.  Their wide-ranging repertoire leans towards Derbyshire dialect and maritime.  Between them, they play English, duet, and Anglo concertinas, and they are known for their striking a capella harmony as well.

 

The afternoon workshop, "Playing by Ear:  the How and the Why" is appropriate for all English and duet concertinas, and for Anglo concertinas in C/G or G/D.  Participants should have a handle on playing the instrument, as this is not a lesson in how to play, as such.

 

Sponsored by The Button Box, in Sunderland, MA.  For more information and to register for the workshop, see http://www.buttonbox.com/kendrick.html or contact The Button Box.

Everything in the text of this announcement is true, to the best of my knowledge, but the date in the title of the post should be June 18.  Sorry!

I wish I could go. I met Keith 20+ years ago at the Chippenham Folk Festival. But I've already got more things planned that day/evening than I can actually do.

I think you ran up against the character limit for titles (OK to be succinct, I think folks here will check your post if they are at all intrigued).  I edited it to fit the full date.  I'll hide your duplicate thread since the date is now visible.

Keith and Sylvia are both first rate. Come out to hear them if you can. This will be a very rare American appearance of this fine UK duo. Great songs and tunes from two of the best singers and squeezers in the tradition.
