Saturday 4th February – The Trad Academy

4.30pm – 6pm


The Russet, Amhurst Terrace, E8 2BT

We’re very pleased to announce that the first meeting of the Trad Academy will take place at the Russet cafe, Hackney Downs on the 4th of February.

The Trad Academy is a new project which aims to serve as a pain-free introduction to the world of traditional dance music. Every Saturday from 4.30-6.00, a group of us, lead by Nick Hart, will work through some traditional (mainly English) tunes, whilst looking at some of the trickier aspects of this music such as timing, phrasing and playing for dance.

The project is aimed at those who can already play their instruments but who may be new to this repertoire of music. We will be playing in the keys of G and D and mostly working by ear, although the dots can be provided for those who really need them. Recordings of each week’s tunes will by posted on dropbox the week before each session. Payment will be by donation.
