Folkestra from England
Sunday, April 13, 7 pm
Seman Violins (4447 Oakton, Skokie)
This event is free.
Folkestra is 11 teenage instrumentalists and singers from Sage Gateshead, an Old Town School clone in Northern England. They are doing a week-long residency at the Old Town School of Folk Music, highlighted by a concert and ceilidh/barn dance at Global Dance Party on Friday, April 11. (That event is also free.) Their visit to Fiddle Club gives us a chance to hear more tunes, learn a couple, and play together.
I hope to be able to post some tunes to learn this week. But try out this pair.

More tunes, and maybe some notes, to follow.
