Swaledale Squeeze Weekend - UK

Squeeze poster
Jody KruskalThe annual Swaledale Squeeze Weekend will be held from May 17th to 19th at Grinton Lodge, based just outside Reeth, in the picturesque setting of Swaledale in the Yorkshire Dales. This concertina weekend aims to be a fantastic mixture of learning and fun.

Guest tutors will be Jody Kruskal (picture left - USA – Anglo), Simon Thoumire (Edinburgh – English) and Tim Laycock (Dorset – Duet) who will join with a dedicated band of regular tutors: Alex Wade (English), Harry Scurfield (Anglo), Paul Walker (English/Anglo), Carolyn Wade (Band) and Dave Ball (Band/English). Together they provide workshops covering a whole range of concertina playing for different abilities, systems and styles.

The weekend will begin with two informal sessions including the Dotty session, with written music provided for the tunes. Saturday includes teaching workshops in the morning and afternoon, an informal tea-time concert and a ceilidh in the evening in Reeth, with the band for the ceilidh and the 'spots' provided by participants. There are more workshops on Sunday morning before the farewell concert on Sunday afternoon, again in Reeth, featuring spots from the tutors and their workshop groups.

In addition there will be a walk around Swaledale for those who wish to join it. They also have Chris Algar's (Barleycorn Concertinas) emporium. Families and friends are welcome too - they may enjoy the area's many craft shops, tearooms and outstanding walks and are welcome to bring other musical instruments for joining in sessions or the ceilidh band.
