Brighter Sound presents a brand new Folk Group course with traditional fiddle star Emma Sweeney. Focusing on traditional Irish folk tunes with an emphasis on authentic style, ornamentation and embellishment. This course is open to any melodic instrument, including whistle, flute, accordion, harmonica. There will be group performance opportunities to play with Emma at local folk ’sessions’ in the Manchester area at the end of the course. A great and friendly way to ‘test the waters’ of the local folk scene with a respected and experienced player at your side.

This course is for intermediate to advanced players of all backgrounds. Some experience of playing in folk styles is an advantage, although not compulsory. (If you are not sure about this or the suitability of your instrument to the course contact us HERE for some guidance).

Whether you are a folk player wanting to extend your repertoire and understanding of style, or an experienced musician who feels that you are tied to the ‘dots’ on a page and want to try something new, this course will have something to offer.
