Festival Community Folk Orchestra Workshops
Saturday Aug 27 @ 10:30 am
Calling all musicians! This year we are running a set of workshops to build a festival “community orchestra”, led by award-winning English piper David Faulkner.
There will be a couple of morning workshops, open to all players of acoustic instruments and abilities, with the focus on fun learning and playing together. You do not have to read music, so if you have at least a basic level of skill on your instruments (advanced players also accommodated) come along!
David is a multi-instrumentalist, music director, composer and arranger and has complimented his piping working as a community folk musician for the last 20 years. He currently runs three community folk orchestras in Exeter, Ashburton and Moretonhampstead, in Devon.
There are two sessions on the mornings of Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th August from 10.30am to 12, in Wadebridge town hall.
Each of these workshops can be stand alone, or, for those who want to take part, they will work towards a performance by the community orchestra on the FAR stage on Sunday 28th August.
