Folkworks Summer Schools 2014
A week of inspirational and fun folk music, song and dance participation
Durham 11th – 16th August 2014
It’s our Birthday!
It’s the 25th anniversary of the Folkworks Summer Schools, internationally renowned for high quality teaching, value for money, and fun.
We choose tutors that are not just well-known musicians but who are passionate about passing on the tradition, the repertoire and instrumental technique to other musicians. Our schools are fun and sociable with lots of sessions, sing-a-rounds, and dances, whilst also providing hours of wonderful tuition in a nurturing and inclusive environment.
We have three schools and each school is tailored to the needs of each age group.
This year’s tutors:
Junior: Eliza Carthy, Dave Gray, Sarah Hayes, Jim Molyneux
