Workshops

A new fortnightly workshop has just started, the “No Pressure” tune session.
If you fancy a play on your instrument but don’t feel ready for a full-blown music session, why not come along to the R3S “No pressure” tune session? This is a session for musicians whose confidence needs a little TLC. Starting slowly, we gradually build up speed on tunes familiar and unfamiliar.
We meet fortnightly at 103 Oldham Road Ripponden, HX6 4EB from 8:00 to 9:45 p.m, the next one is Friday 23 November.
Please get in touch with Steve Jones (ryburn3step@gmail.com or 01422 823099) if you are interested in coming along.

Ryburn 3 Step has, throughout its existence, been committed to helping people discover their abilities to sing, to dance , to play and to understand the richness of the folk and traditional culture which has defined our lives over the centuries and continues to do so in the modern world.

To this end, we offer a range of activities both regular and occasional to help people of all ages discover their abilities, learn something new, get some exercise or just have a good time in a pleasant social setting.

Workshop Days:
There have been dozens of workshop days over the years. People have gathered together to learn tunes, learn an instrument, sing, write or accompany songs, or learn a style of dancing – clog, flat footing and more. Our last one was on the topic of hornpipes, in November 2018.

Weekly workshops / practice sessions:
Tuesday: Appalachian step dancing;
Wednesday: Traditional Longsword dancing;
Thursday: Singing
For details ring 01422 822569 (dancing) or 01422 822413 (singing)
