This could have been you or me...

On a chilly Dublin autumn evening, the BIB particularly welcomes this photo from Fiddlin' Tim Hawkins, showing a sunset session at the Old-Time American Music Week which has just ended, in the idyllic surroundings of La Fuente de Musica, Andalusia, Spain. Note the set table in the foreground. Tim says he had a fantastic time, and we're inclined to believe it.

Old-time country music workshop holidays are held at La Fuente in spring and autumn each year. Fiddle, banjo, guitar, song, dance, and beginners’ instrumental are taught by some of the best old-time teachers in the world. Tutors last week, for example, included Beverly Smith and John Grimm (USA) and Kate Lissauer and other members of her Buffalo Gals band. Kate wrote earlier this year:

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.
