La Fuente de Musica workshop, May 2012

The next edition of La Fuente de Musica, the residential old-time music workshop week in Andalucia, Spain, organised by Kate Lissauer, is scheduled for 12-19 May 2012, at El Fonte, Sorbas, Espana 04270.

The curriculum for May music week includes classes in beginning and advanced old-time fiddle, beginning and advanced old-time banjo, guitar, and group singing. Teachers are Dave Bing, Kate Lissauer, John Whelan, Peter Dunn, and one or two others TBC. The attractions include

... great teaching, great companionship, a small group of like-minded people, the intimate setting, pure natural beauty, wonderful food, big swimming pool, mountains, privacy, great music day and night... May week has now expanded to include more instruments and more levels of instruction. There is something for everyone, and even the non-playing partner or family member will have a glorious, relaxing time.

The £500 fee covers tuition, room and board, and use of all facilities. Transport is paid by participants, and transfers are arranged, as needed, by La Fuente. Rooms are shared by two, three, or four people, and private double or twin rooms are available for couples.
