Paul James / Merit Zloch / Germán Díaz - Ensemble music making workshop weekend @ Halsway Manor

Halsway Manor, Halsway Lane, Halsway, near Crowcombe

An extended weekend course for musicians to develop their ensemble playing skills. Drawing on European folk/contemporary/popular music traditions we’ll be making new arrangements that can go in any direction. The aim is to explore and combine all sorts of influences and ideas to make spine tingling music that is more than the sum of the parts.
