JOHN KIRKPATRICK: MODES WORKSHOP for any instrument
Places 30
 Saturday 25th. October 2008
10.45 a.m.- 4.45 p.m.
The Lewes Arms, Mount Place, Lewes,
East Sussex BN7 1YH
            John Kirkpatrick is a superb singer, great writer, fine dancer & the best English squeezer bar none. He is one of the great solo acts on the folk scene & has played with the Albions, Steeleye Span, Brass Monkey, Band of Hope & many more.

           

            "Modes" are kinds of scales that are not quite the same as the common Do Re Me variety. John will explain exactly what they are, how they behave, where you find them in English folk music, and what to do with them once you've identified what they are. Modes demystified. Of interest to any instrumentalist or singer, but more suitable for instrumentalists.
