Do you like playing in a dance band? Here's your chance!
A note from our contra dance workshop leader, Maggie Duncan -"I have some dance tune sets that people might like to have a look at prior to the camp - they can come and play (any instrument ) for the dance workshops. Chord charts, tune sets attached. Hugh and Janet (fiddle and keyboard workshops) also have some sets of their tunes , so we will be using them too."
You can download Maggie's charts using the links below:
1 Montreal Set Chords
2 Flop Eared Mule Set Chords
3 Jimmy Allen Set Chords
4 Down Home Set Chords
5 Soldier's Joy Set Chords
6 One More Time Set Chords
7 The Breakdown Set Chords
8 Petronella Set Chords
9 Devil on a Stump Set Chords
10 Little Burnt Potato Set Chords
11 Calliope Set Chords
12 La Bastringue Set Chords
13 La Chaine Set Chords
I'm loving the names for these sets! Should be a fun workshop both for musicians and dancers alike!

Now that you've recovered from the shock, here's something to make you feel better - more info about our amazing tutors and the workshops they'll be presenting! You can find the new info here:
and start thinking about which instruments to pack! (Please note that Pat will not be lying down while teaching his workshops. He's just having a rest because I can't work out how to turn him the right way up.
Andy has proudly finalised our program lineup for this year (phew!) and, well, quite frankly I'm excited and wondering how you will all choose between them. Hoops, Guitars, Contra Dancing, Singing and our ever innovative youth band are first cabs off the rank. Check out the workshop program here and then head over to the Tutors page for a "teaser" about the amazingly talented crew who'll be teaching at Charnwood. Stay tuned for more details as they come flying into my inbox!
