Fiddle Folk Group

Are you interested in playing folk / traditional / world music ?

We are a small group of adults who are learning to play the fiddle. We get together every couple of weeks in West Bridgford to play folk tunes from around the world (plus whatever takes our fancy!) and are keen to extend the group to include other acoustic instruments and more fiddles.

Most of us have only been learning the fiddle for a couple of years. We play just for fun and only beginner - intermediate standard with the emphasis on the enjoyment of playing along with others.

If you are interested in joining us, we would love to hear from you, particularly if you are learning an instrument yourself, or perhaps you used to play and would like to get back into it.

If you would like to get in touch please email [email protected] or telephone 982 0926.

New Jazz Group?

Anyone interested in an occasional get together, to listen to Jazz CDs and perhaps watch VHS tapes of Jazz programmes. I have a large collection of interesting footage.
