Wednesday Evening Zoom Class from 7pm
This classes is suitable for all melody instruments. We learn and play at a medium slow/medium pace.  All participants are muted except for questions.

Sessions are particularly useful.  Everyone is muted except the leader, giving accompanists a chance to experiment and allowing melody players to play confidently without fear of putting another group member off track.  Or just a chance to play the Highly Strung repertoire along with an experienced fiddle player.

We are currently operating via Zoom

Please e mail Jill jillyelliot@gmail.com for the link - it is the same each week for any class or session - please arrive 5-10 minutes early

7.00pm-8.00pm - learn a new tune/revise previous week's tune

8.15pm-9.15pm - session of tunes we have been learning with Jill will leading.

The fee for the whole evening is 10 - or if you just want to join for the session, it is 5

Your 10 fee covers you for any other group or session for the whole week.


In the session choose a tune from the Highly Strung Band favourites and new tunes we are learning.  Play along with Jill and take the opportunity to add your own harmony parts or variation without feeling the constraints of playing live in a group.

We are currently operating via Zoom
