Now the Hard Work Begins!

After another cracking session playing, singing, learning and being delighted by this week’s new instrument, the dulcimer, there’s a growing feeling that stretching beyond just “playing along” will bring another dimension to our playing and enjoyment of music. A small selection of our favourite songs will now form the focus of a session within our sessions to learn parts of a greater whole and arrange them into a proper performable piece. With these songs our less experienced players will have the opportunity to stretch themselves under the guidance of the seasoned veterans and we can all bring something, hopefully really special, together.

Aside from this monumental pledge to learn more deeply, this week’s session, fuelled by hand crafted raspberry gin, was another roll through the favourite’s list and some renditions of possible additions, of particular note being Neil Young’s Harvest Moon played on the dulcimer.
