An Evening With…David Oliver
May 1 @ 7:00 pm - June 12 @ 8:30 pm
We are delighted to welcome some of the North East’s finest folk musicians into the studio for an online evening event. There will be time for guests to perform some solo material, and they will also lead a tunes session with us – so bring your instruments to join in from home!
We are looking forward to hosting one of Northumberland’s best known accordion players, David Oliver. David is a longstanding and passionate advocate of community music making and has led projects around the world. He was the Education Director for Folkworks for 16 years and Chair of FolkArts England from 2003-2009. In 2020, David was appointed Honorary Steward and Bailiff of Hexham in recognition of his “important contribution to making Hexham a hotspot for traditional music”.
The evening will be a mix of solo performance by David and session tunes to join in with. Sheet music for the session will be available to download here soon.
These are open access events on Zoom. The joining codes are below, and there is no need to book in advance. Please pay as you feel, or can afford, using our Tip Jar.
