Concertina Workshop with Tim Laycock

The workshop

Tim is a fine singer & duet concertina player. He has 35 years’ professional experience of playing concertina in venues ranging from mission churches in Colombia to Dorset village halls; from ceilidhs in barns to the National Theatre. His most recent recording ‘Sea Strands’ features traditional songs from Dorset & dance tunes from the Benjamin Rose manuscript. Tim’s website:

The workshop is for all systems of concertina & will cover techniques for playing, performance & extending repertoire; we’ll also learn some cracking tunes from the manuscripts of Benjamin Rose of Belchalwel & Daniel Rolls of Weymouth, Dorset. Music will be sent out in advance.
