Beamish Session

Date:

27 September 2017 20:00

Meeting at 8pm on the last Wednesday of the month at Home Farm, Beamish Museum:

DH9 0RG

 

F & G pitch pipes and other instruments welcome. 

Dave Shaw  0120 7231474

dave@daveshaw.co.uk

'The session was in the delightful setting of the farmhouse kitchen in Beamish on the museum site. There was a lovely welcome when I walked in.The fire was burning and the tea and biscuits were a treat. There is the enjoyment of another age experienced in sitting in that kitchen surrounded by the paraphernalia of a bygone age, playing pipes (and other instruments) and the expected amount of musician banter – I am always amazed that when players get together they sometimes even play tunes.  I got my pipes whisked off to be mended, played and heard some new tunes. What more would I want of a session? It will be lovely to see more players there next time, it is a big kitchen and there is certainly room to be filled.'  (Ednie Wilson)
