  1. A short break on my Fiddle Trek.

    After seven years with the same teacher, during which my fiddle has been my passion and I have learned so much from a very charismatic and clever musician, I am planning to move on.

    We're hoping that this is the year we make it to York, and once there, there's a wide variety of violin teachers available, ranging from music students charging much less than the going rate and who are presumably a bit temporary, through teachers who specialise in genres such as jazz, folk, and even

    This was the second time we saw Rachel Podger and it was once again beautiful and compelling.

  5. Folkworks summer school at Durham, 2018

    We’ve just got back from Folkworks 2018, the thirtieth anniversary, held at Grey College, Durham. John wanted to go there so he could improve on his concertina as the tutor there this year was the renowned Alistair Anderson. I was playing fiddle, and the tutors were Sarah Matthews and Adam Sutherland.

    We had a good week - the weather was very hot, but mostly bearable. We stayed in a self-catering place by the river in Durham, but we ate lunch and the evening meal at Grey College
