A Sherborne Early Music weekend workshop with Canadian-born hurdy gurdy virtuoso Tobie Miller.
This course will focus on both early and traditional repertoires for the hurdy gurdy, as well as right and left-hand techniques, expressive possibilities of the instrument, and ensemble playing. Participants should have their own instrument, tuned either C/G or D/G (please specify at registration), and at least some prior playing experience (basic right and left-hand techniques). The weekend will open with a solo recital performed by Tobie Miller at Winstone's Bookshop (www.winstonebooks.co.uk) on Friday, March 6th at 7pm. The course proper will commence the following morning and culminate with an informal performance given by the participants on Sunday March 8th. Course materials will be sent to participants at least two weeks prior to the workshop.
