It’s not suitable for absolute beginners but no previous experience of folk music is needed. Nor do you need to read music (but it would be fine if you do). Cost will be in the region of £430 which covers 5 days full board and tuition.
The annual Scandinavian Squeeze-In is of course happening again in 2017. All the details are the same as in last year’s announcement, except (of course) the dates. Our 18th annual SSI will be held over the weekend 28-30 April 2017.
