MONDAY 6th. OCTOBER, 8.00 - 11.00 PM

This is Bryan Creer's regular free session for concertina players of all systems and abilities on the first Monday of the month. What happens depends largely on who turns up, but there's usually some part-playing at some stage and a few session tunes get severely beaten up.

Alan Day, a superb Anglo concertina player, leads this month. He is the man responsible for the excellent CD compilations 'Anglo International' and 'English International' and will have a couple of copies with him if you're interested.

If you'd like to lead one of these sessions, which are always on the first Tuesday of the month, let me know.

LEWES FAVOURITES ENGLISH TUNES PRACTICE SESSION, LEWES ARMS CLUB-ROOM,

WEDNESDAY 22nd. OCTOBER , 8.00 - 11.00 PM
