Scratch Fiddle Workshop w/Lauren South @ Albany Theatre - Clive Benfield Studio
Mar 2 @ 11:30 am – 1:00 pm

CV Folk Freshers Workshop

Here’s your chance to gain and develop your music-making and performance skills under the guidance of leading musicians and performers from the folk circuit.

CVFolk is hosting a series of specialist workshops at the Albany Theatre, Coventry on the first Saturday morning of each month. For 90 minutes you can build your expertise in a range of instruments and performance styles, inspired by experts.

Talented multi-instrumentalist and singer, Lauren South includes some ace fiddle-playing in her live shows and has extensive experience as an instrumental tutor. So, if you’re a complete beginner or only have limited experience, why not come along and have a go at the fiddle? Bring your own if you can, although there will be a small number of instruments to borrow, and Lauren will get you playing by the end of the session.

She will be hosting a number of workshops on the CVFolk programme, so watch out for follow-up dates.

Admission £5 – book in advance or bring a fiver with you, and a fiddle if you have one!

‘Write a Song’ – Workshop w/Coventry Singer-Songwriters @ Albany Theatre - Clive Benfield Studio
May 4 @ 11:30 am – 1:30 pm

CV Folk Freshers Workshop

Here’s your chance to gain and develop your music-making and performance skills under the guidance of leading musicians and performers from the folk circuit.

CVFolk is hosting a series of specialist workshops at the Albany Theatre, Coventry on the first Saturday morning of each month. For 90 minutes you can build your expertise in a range of instruments and performance styles, inspired by experts.

Members of the long-established Coventry Singer-Songwriters group, led by Jon Harrington, will work with you for a hands-on session, exploring your creativity in lyrics and melody, and enabling you to write your own song. This follows the well-received masterclass which they presented for CVFolk last summer with a much bigger focus on your own writing and composition.

Admission £5 – book in advance or bring a fiver with you, and an instrument if you have one!
