Tickets available at box office.

LAST CHANCE to sign up to a three-part course in Ballad Scholarship & Sourcing. Lessons at 19:00 BST on July 7th, 14th and 21st via Zoom.


This will focus on the process of sourcing, interpreting, editing, arranging a ballad and will guide members through several of my favourite online (FREE) folksong and ballad resources and archives.

You don’t need any resources or books, just access to Zoom. Resources will be sent to you. Your ticket ensures you get three workshops so you get more out of the classes and can do your research between classes. This is open to beginners. This class is limited to 15 people so it will not be a big class and plenty of space to learn and ask questions.
