La Fuente Music School, Spain - April 30 to May 7 2016


Drive about an hour north of Almeria in southern Spain and, in the mountains, you will find La Fuente where their Spring music school will run from 30th April through to 7th May.

Returning to this well-established music school event will be Alice Gerrard. There is a good reason that Smithsonian Folkways called their collection of songs by Alice and Hazel Dickens 'Pioneering Women of Bluegrass', Alice and Hazel recorded in the mid-1960s when bluegrass music was dominated by male performers. Alice has, more recently, been nominated for a Grammy award for her album 'Follow The Music'.

The teaching will be led by Alice and Tom Sauber (who form two-thirds of  'Tom, Brad & Alice') - classes will also be led by Joff Lowson, Sibs Riesen and Johnny Whelan. The classes are designed to be inclusive so all levels of ability will be welcomed at La Fuente.
