The Rheingans Sisters

Support: Lauren Jackson & Gordon Gange

Tickets £10 from The Globe or www.wegottickets.com

Fiddle-singers Rowan and Anna grew up in the Peak District, surrounded by traditional music. Both professional musicians, Rowan is well known on the English folk music scene as part of hugely popular BBC Folk Award nominated trio Lady Maisery as well as for her work with Nancy Kerr & The Sweet Visitor Band. Anna lives in Toulouse, in southern France, where she is a much sought after fiddle player and teacher of french music traditions, in which she has fast become an expert, having just gained a 1st class diploma from the Conservatioire Occitan. As both sisters have also spent a significant amount of time studying fiddle music in Scandinavia, they pull a range of influences from both the northern and southern European fiddle traditions into their own compositions and arrangements.

Workshops at The Globe: Fiddle


Sunday 24th April 2016

Fiddle/Violin workshop hosted by Tom Kitching

The next workshop at the globe is aimed at fiddle players, the workshop will be hosted by one of England's finest fiddle players Tom Kitching. 1.30pm till 2.30pm then 3pm till 4pm. each session will be £10 £15 for both sessions.

Beginner's Fiddle Workshop
You really only need to know one end of the fiddle from the other to join in this one. We'll look at how to simplify your technique to make playing easier. We'll explore how to give yourself options, how to produce different sorts of tone, and how to start separating what the two hands are doing.

The aim will be to help each player start to take ownership of their style, and provide a bigger toolkit of sounds and techniques to work with.

Intermediate workshop
For this workshop, I will assume a reasonable level of competence, perhaps a few dozen tunes under the fingers, and a degree of session/other playing experience. You don't need to be a whizz, but you can definitely hold a tune in company.

We'll explore the rhythmic side of using the bow, working on building structure and shape into tunes. We'll look at how to get crystal clear tone and good connection with the finger board.

Across both workshops, there will be space to ask questions, and even dictate the course of the workshop. Whilst I have formats and ideas, ultimately, it's what's useful to the players who attend. I'm open minded and want to help!

Marry Waterson & David A Jaycock

Tickets £10 from The Globe or wegottickets.com

Support: Michael Burns

Nominated for Best Duo and Best Original Track at BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2016. With their bluesy guitar licks and layered harmonies, Marry & David bring you their latest album Two Wolves, with each of its songs brimming with nuance and depth. Although covering some deeply personal subjects, Marry’s skills as a singer, lyricist and, above all, a story-teller bring a very human touch, enabling the songs to maintain their focus and intensity without overwhelming the listener. David’s compositions are beguiling and inventive, providing the ideal musical foil, both for Marry’s compelling voice and Kate’s subtle arrangements.
