Old-time music camps in Spain: latest

Thanks to the UK Friends Of American Old Time Music And Dance (FOAOTMAD) for the latest report from Kate Lissauer on old-time music camps with US tutors in Andalusia, Spain. All three of the workshop weeks for 2009, described on the European Bluegrass Blog on 6 March, are now fully booked:

May 2-9 Old-Time Music Week with Dave and Tim Bing
May 10-17 Old-Time Music Week with Dave and Tim Bing
Oct. 3-10 Old-Time Music Week with Beverly Smith and Carl Jones

As long as there is sufficient interest, Kate Lissauer will hold these workshops, or similar ones, in 2010.

She is also discussing scheduling a workshop week on musical improvisation with Stergios Loustas (of the Greek band Swingtime) and a week with Leon Hunt (UK) on banjo musicianship. Expressions of interest in these residential weeks, or requests for others, would be welcome in helping her to plan. Contact her by e-mail.
