I travel around for workshops - given a suitably sized group and fee. I currently live in Banbury - so am fairly central to the UK.
As for the Fiddle Festival of Wales - that's based in Pembrokeshire and, if I say so myself and also from feedback, a fantastic fiddling weekend in a beautiful place. It would be great if we could keep in touch and maybe get some interest from your area - one or two people from Kent, London and Essex travel down every year.
Rick Townend is from your way - he's agreed to come as a Bluegrass Fiddle Tutor, I've not confirmed all of the tutors just yet - but I have Ireland, Scotland, Sweden, England and Wales covered... there may be a possibility of a Breton tutor.
As for text for an advert -
