  4. Just realised that I put this post on last year's announcement - apologies for the mistake. Bryan Creer and I (Spare Parts) will be running some concertina part-playing sessions at Whitby Folk Week 2019.

  6. Could I add that they are also doing an all-day workshop on French & Scandinavian dance music for any instrument at Lewes Saturday Folk Club in Sussex on 18th. May, followed by an evening performance? Tickets are available for both events. Some music will be sent in advance. Full details here: http://www.lewessaturdayfolkclub.org/LAFC/WS267desc.html
  7. Dear Don, I wish I could help, but I haven't got the technology and also feel it would be off-putting for pupils to know that the workshop was being filmed, even if the camera/mobile phone wasn't being pointed directly at them. It would be a bit like the cold panic that descends when you try to record yourself. How about making your local organiser's life a misery until they book Sandra to do a workshop in Ontario? And possibly one on the Baltic Coast on the way, following Wolf Molkentin's comment above. Best wishes, Valmai
