The Festival Folk Orchestra - with Fiddlesticks
A fun community performance opportunity for musicians at the festival, open to all acoustic folk Instruments.
Each day of the festival the participants gather for an hour. The music is workshopped and arranged through the weekend and prepared for a performance on the last day of the festival.
Prior to the festival, three tunes will be published in 1-2 parts for the treble instruments and chords for Guitar /Bass. Participants will be able to download the music (15 mins of music) before they come to the festival so they are familiar with it. (Music will also be available at the festival).
Tunes are best learnt by ear. However music stands and readers are equally very welcome.
