A new month and another Slow Session on Sunday at 3.30pm as usual in the White House. I hope you can join us. Some easier tunes for the first hour, a short break and some harder or faster tunes after. The tune of the month is the lovely Galician tune Montanesa de Lugo.
If you can’t make it to Oxford, or you’re not feeling well, you can join us on zoom: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/85067985211?pwd=UG9oUmVML0RqRzdqbE9MUXVlRnZvQT09
(But really being in the room together is much more fun and there are brownies!)
I’ve added three more tunes to the website: The Swaggering Jig (which I knew first as Give us a drink of water), Eade Road (by Jo Hamilton of the amazing Xogera) and The Millhouse. I hope you enjoy learning them as much as I have.
