Virtual Summer School 2021

We are very excited to announce that Ali’s arm has been twisted and we will be holding another online summer school this year! (only kidding – she needs her arm to play the fiddle!)

We are delighted to welcome back Kevin Lees and Grace Smith who will be tutoring alongside Stewart and Melissa. The event will run over the weekend of 23rd – 25th July 2021, and will be entirely online. We will begin with a play-along session in harmony with Stewart on the Friday evening. These have proved to be very popular during lockdown in his own workshops, so we wanted to bring the experience to NEFS. On the Saturday and Sunday there will be a full live schedule of guided fiddle practice, live workshops for each ability level, tutor discussion events, a concert and a tutor-led session, as well as a Big Tune for everyone to learn and play. There will also be video tutorials which you can do instead of the live workshops for different levels, or at a later date as you will have access to these for six months. All live workshops will also be recorded and available to catch-up with for a month.

Full details will be published on the Virtual Summer School web page, and bookings will be open soon. Save the date!
