Emmanuel Pariselle & Didier Oliver, Lewes Saturday Folk Club

Emmanuel is one of the best melodeon players in France, a singer & an expert in French regional dance music. He also plays a specially-designed ‘Franglo’ concertina. He has taught at Hands-On Music & regularly leads melodeon-building weeks in England. Didier is a superb fiddler & also dazzles on mandolin, boha (Gascon bagpipes) & guitar. They are favourites at the National Centre for Folk Arts at Halsway Manor. Both are wonderful singers.

Emmanuel & Didier will give us two forty-five minute spots and the rest of the evening is filled by members of the audience performing a song or tune if they wish.

During the day Emmanuel & Didier lead an all-day workshop on the dance music of Gascony, for any instrument.

Everyone is welcome, especially if you'd like to sing or play. We mostly sing and play traditional music from the British Isles, but we enjoy other styles as well. We always start off with some English dance tunes for anyone with an instrument to join in.

We have a loyalty card. Six visits earn you £5 off an evening when admission is £5 or more. It's £10 tonight. Advance tickets are available from the club and its website.
