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.
Using traditional dance material from Gascony collected in the 1970s & 1980s, the workshop will be based on the three legendary dances of South-West France: the Rondeau (couple & chain) the Béarn Chain Branle & the Captieux Congo. Emmanuel demonstrates harmonies with melodeon & Didier demonstrates melody & style with other instruments.
Some music will be sent out in advance.
