Folk Weekend Oxford needs your help

Folk Weekend Oxford needs more stewards!

Please sign up (click on here for form to fill in).

If you agree to steward (no experience necessary and training will be given for more advanced roles if you would like them) for fours hours, you gain a free day ticket to the festival. If you help for eight hours, then you have a wristband for the whole weekend.

The timetable for the weekend is now available, so when you have signed up, you will receive an email asking for your preferred shifts so you can choose your time to fit around your preferred concerts.

And don’t forget Oxford Slow Session has a slot too… Come along to the Chequers Pub (High St) 5pm – 8pm on Sunday evening, 22nd April 2018. Do join in!

Owl Light launch gig on Friday!

Probably the best folk music you’ll hear in Oxford… coming to the Quaker Meeting House on St Giles at 7pm this Friday 23rd February. The Owl Light Trio take a folk tune and weave harmonies and variations to create wizardry. Hope to see you there!


Two tunes added…

Finally now that Finale songwriter is working again (phew), I can quit struggling with new programmes and spend the time looking for good links to listen to… I have been meaning to post up these two tunes since last summer as they are fun to play (at any speed). I have some more to post too as I try to catch up on the backlog… so hope to post  some more next week…. meanwhile, I hope you enjoy these two:

La Sansonette and

The Hills of Kaitoke


Change of venue for Sunday 5th November

Dear Slow Sessionistas

I’m afraid at the last minute the St Aldates Pub discovered they had 70 football supporters coming on Sunday to watch the football…
but fortunately the manager has helped me find an alternative: The Chequers Pub (just off the High St, round the corner from St Aldates).
We’ll meet there at 3.45pm (to give people a chance to come from St Aldgate’s Tavern). We have an upstairs space at the end of the Chequers pub. The landlord is really friendly and seemed positively keen to have us! So please buy a drink and join in.
(Also problems continue with Jericho… December session has to be a week early on 26th November but we’re booked to be back in the Jericho Tavern)
Hope to see you on Sunday!
Best wishes,
