All are welcome at the Horsmonden trad music class’s end of term session from 8pm on Wednesday at the Gun & Spitroast, Horsmonden, Kent!
We’ll be playing many of the tunes we’ve learnt in the class during the year, but there will likely also be stepdancing and few songs – we’re hoping to be joined by Rosie Davis, singer John Morgan and Morris dancing pals Weald of Kent after their regular Wednesday evening dance out.
It should be a fun, informal opportunity to find out what the classes are all about!
Invited weekend performers include Will Duke, Andy Turner, Annie Dearman and Steve Harrison, and Peter Collins.
STOP PRESS – we’ve just learned that the pub will be doing meals from 7pm, which might well be useful to anyone who is staying through to the evening!
