Wanted: English concertina players for this year’s Summer School at Durham School

Calling all young adventurous instrument players!
The International Concertina Association has decided to sponsor a tutor at the Youth Summer School at Durham School this year.
What we need now are lots of young (14 to 20) musicians. The
dates are July 24 to 29,  2017 and the tutor will be Alex Wade.

You can see Alex at:

Full details ate at:

http://www.sagegateshead.com/event/folkworks-youth-summer-school-2017/

It’s not suitable for absolute beginners but no previous experience of folk music is needed. Nor do you need to read music (but it would be fine if you do). Cost will be in the region of £430 which covers 5 days full board and tuition.

A splendid time is guaranteed for all!
