  1. Hello, I've got a new Beginner English Concertina video course available with The Folk Music Academy. 14 videos including tunes, technique and performances aimed at beginner players of the English concertina. There's an intermediate/advanced course due out later in the year too. Subscriptions to The Folk Music Academy include access to their full catalogue of courses covering a huge range of instruments and traditions. If you use this link http://www.thefolkmusicacaademy.com/robharbron you will get 20% (until April 13th and 10% thereafter). Thanks! Rob Harbron robharbron.com
  2. Poking my head up to post about these forthcoming online workshops that I hope will be of use to some people... I've got a couple of online workshops coming up, discussing playing for Morris and song accompaniment on EC. I deliver the workshops live on zoom, with space for questions and discussion, and film them as they're going out. Then I edit them, add any additional material and send a link out so you have access in your own time indefinitely, or if you can't be online when the workshop's taking place. 4pm GMT so hopefully timed a bit more favourably for people in the US and Canada than the last ones I did!

  5. Hi all, Just wanted to let you know about a workshop day I'll be running near Sheffield (UK) on June 16th. It's being organised at the last minute to fill a sudden gap in the diary, but I'm hoping it will be of interest to some of you. It's already being discussed here but I'm posting again so it will appear in the News feed. 16 June 2012 | Concertina Day with Rob Harbron | Underbank Schoolrooms, Sheffield | £35 Rob Harbron will lead a one-day concertina workshop which will help players develop and consolidate their own individual playing styles. Rob plays the English system but the day will be open to players of all systems and much of the day will be spent discussing ideas and technique which are not system-specific. The day will be suitable for players of all abilities, from basic through to intermediate and advanced. The day is concerned more with individual style and technique than playing together, but music for a few tunes which will be used throughout the day will be sent by email a few days beforehand. Session 1: 11am – 12:30pm Doing the basics well - making a good sound by thinking about posture, use of the bellows, tone, attack, dynamics, etc. LUNCH (BYO or local pubs) Session 2: 1:30pm – 3pm Developing your own style - looking at phrasing, groove, swing, ornamentation, variation, etc Session 3: 3:30pm – 5pm Putting it all together - shortcuts to harmony and accompaniment, techniques for building arrangements, and ways to perform more confidently. Book a place (using PayPal): www.robertharbron.co.uk Send email if you have any questions or would prefer to pay by cash/cheque on the day. All the best, Rob
