Sandra Kerr has long been a brilliant & influential singer & player of the English concertina, since with her days with Ewan MacColl's Critics Group. A versatile musician with a fine, expressive voice, she is also an accomplished songwriter & has been a core tutor on the Newcastle University Traditional Music degree course. Sandra has recorded with many fine performers including her daughter Nancy Kerr & James Fagan. She also co-wrote the music for the children's TV series Bagpuss.

The workshop will focus on creative accompaniment for the voice using any concertina system, & also a short session on the tunes Sandra recorded with Vic Gammon on the highly entertaining CD Early Scottish Ragtime. Some music will be sent in advance.
