Lewis Wood at our ‘Virtual Session’ on Monday evening 22 June
June 22, 2020 @ 8:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Lewis Wood will be the guest at our next ‘Virtual Session’ on Monday evening 22 June. Lewis is a hugely talented musician on fiddle, guitar, mandolin, piano and probably just about anything that has strings. His musical interests are wide and include European and Irish music although his primary source is the English tradition.
Using the online meeting app Zoom, you will be able to see, listen to, and talk to Lewis from the comfort of your own home as he plays a few tunes from “Footwork”, his upcoming album of original tunes for regional English step and step clog dancing, and talks about what drives him as a musician. He will talk and play for about half an hour and then we’ll have a discussion and chat with him. You can find out about Lewis from his website:

The proceedings will open at 8.00pm for half an hour’s tunes and chat with the Virtual Session regulars, and then Lewis will play, and talk from 8.30 to 9.30pm. For more information please visit our EVENTS page.
Lewis Wood is a folk violinist, multi-instrumentalist and composer from Worcester, currently based in Hampshire. He is starting to gain a reputation as a musician on the English folk scene, particularly with the trio Granny’s Attic. He is most noted for playing tunes in the English tradition, however his repertoire also covers the rest of the British Isles, France, Scandinavia, North America and beyond, and he is also an inventive accompanier of traditional song.
His self-penned tunes combine aspects of various traditions with a contemporary direction, the result being a unique blend of the traditional and modern elements of folk music today. They have been described as ‘certainly modern but with a genuine feel and understanding for music that stretches back into the past.’
