Vicki Swan (nyckelharpas, bagpipes, flute, vocals) & Jonny Dyer (accordion, guitars, vocals) As versatile musicans Vicki & Jonny wear many hats. One hat is playing for dance - early music, Playford, ceilidh and contra.
This workshop is all about the wonderful art of playing for dance. The art of the groove and accompaniment, how to play with bounce and getting the feet moving. Vicki & Jonny have just released an album of danceable /listenable music with Purcell's Polyphonic Party. Learn their vibrant approach of playing for dance in all the different iterations.
Some music will be sent in advance.
