John Spiers, known better in folk circles as Squeezy, has made a name for himself as one of the leading squeezebox players of his generation. Well known for his long-standing duo partnership with Jon Boden in the formidable Spiers & Boden as well as his contribution to the massively popular Bellowhead, John has also played with Eliza Carthy's Ratcatchers. He's now working as a duo with Peter Knight of Steeleye Span.

The workshop will cover building arrangements of traditional tunes on D/G melodeon to make full use of its many sounds & textures, both as a solo instrument & as part of a band. This is a mixed ability workshop for all except complete beginners.
Some music will be sent out in advance.
