A week of music and learning in sunny Spain

Autumn, or possibly winter, seems to be already here in Ireland; so thanks to Kate Lissauer for this message about the next Old-Time American Music Week, which will begin a month from today in the idyllic surroundings of La Fuente de Musica, Andalusia, Spain:

Everyone who has been there says it’s their favourite holiday week, and if you love old-time country and bluegrass music it could be yours too. La Fuente music workshop week is coming up, 26 Sept. to 3 Oct., and there are still places available. You will learn fiddle, banjo, guitar, song, dance, and beginners’ instrumental from the finest teachers in the world. This time it’s Beverly Smith and John Grimm from Georgia, our very own Joff Lowson [see the BIB post of two days ago], Johnny Whelan, and Kate Lissauer.

This wonderful week takes place on a beautiful remote oasis in south-eastern Spain, where all of your needs are taken care of so you can play music, learn, explore, eat great food, swim, hike, visit the beach, or relax all day and night. It’s a non-profit project and so your costs are very low! Contact us through the website or via e-mail for information and enrolment.
