Sessions at 103 Oldham Rd, Ripponden HX6 4EB

This venue helped establish the Ryburn 3 Step organisation enabling a variety of dance, instrumental & song sessions. From September, Pete & Sue wish to revive singing & playing sessions in the shop.

SINGING OUT will feature a wide variety of traditional songs. Following the singing group led by Chris Coe, these sessions won’t be a ‘Folk Choir’ but choruses, harmonies & accompaniments are options. Dates tbc

PLAYING UP will be sessions of country dance tunes for melody & accompanying instruments, tunes learned by ear, with some help from notation. Dates tbc.

It is hoped that the singing & playing participants will feed into supporting & contributing to both the folk club & barn dances. Where requested we can call on additional vocal & instrumental skills within Ryburn 3 Step & our contacts further afield.

We can also present House Concerts at 103 where artists are on tour but with limited dates available.

Pete has been a professional folk musician for over 50 years, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, dance musician & caller with considerable teaching experience at festivals & university. Pete & Sue have a substantial sound & print library available as resources with facilities for providing print & sound copies.
