Festival Meeting – 6th August, 1.30pm

If you are planning to attend, please register on the private eventbrite page so we have an idea of numbers, and if you have not attended our players meeting before, please make yourself known in advance by email. 

6th August Meeting

1pm-1.30pm – Arrive

1.30pm – Our regular meeting, members are invited to perform the music they have been working on and to present on topics of interest. Depending on the numbers present about 3 pieces per performer would be ideal. £1 donation for the venue.

3pm – Tea, Coffee, and Cake. A chance to socialise before the lecture recital.

3.30pm – Jamie Akers, Ivan Klinger: The Poor Branch

Jamie Akers presents music by 19th-century Ukranian guitarist Ivan  Klinger from his new album. Klinger’s seeming anonymity belies the composer’s substantial and high-quality oeuvre. Born in 1818 in Seltz near Kherson (today’s Ukraine), Klinger was one of the few guitarists to devote himself to the Western style six-string guitar.
