Thursday 8th June: Music workshop and Eurosession

Stretch your skills and weave a musical tapestry!

In June, two of our finest Eurosession musicians, Jo Veal and Anna Pack, will be leading a music workshop before the evening’s dancing begins.

After the workshop we’ll continue with our regular Eurosession of offers and requests.

So bring instruments for the workshop, and dance shoes if you want to dance later in the session.

Music workshop – 8:pm – 9:00pm
         Eurosession: 9:00pm – 11pm
     Venue: Shakespeare’s Pub ~ S3 8UB

About the workshop

This music workshop will focus on putting style and feeling into your ensemble playing with exercises to help you…

  • Listen attentively to others 
  • Develop rich rhythms and harmonies
  • Innovate within the forms and genres of traditional dance music
  • Use dynamic musical energy to enhance the dance experience

You will enjoy developing your skills, and celebrate the achievements of the ensemble.

All skill levels and instruments welcome. Come with an intention to contribute sensitively to the tapestry of the whole.

Jo Veal is an accomplished clarinettist, and has played European music for at least 20 years, as well as playing a key role in a variety of bands such as OutreManche, Hekety, Bell Haggs Orkestar, and other performances for improv jazz and puppetry accompaniment.  
Anna Pack discovered European traditional dancing in the 1980s and plays diatonic button accordion and clarinet, regularly performing with several duos and trios, including with Blowzabella’s Dave Shepherd and Oscina (a trio with Frances Watt and Chris Walshaw).

Keep on Caring
Eurosession is a welcoming community and we want everyone to feel safe.  Please stay home if you feel unwell.

We suggest a £5 cash donation for the workshop, although if you give more then we can better support our teachers and musicians with fair payment. We accept cash or card.

See you soon,
