Where to go for musical weekends
"Home of Hands On Music Weekends"
Witney (aka Whitney) is the home of the Hands On Music series of weekend folk music instruction, put together by Dave Townsend. It is also one of the few places in the country to offer any kind of Anglo Concertina lessons, and that's why we went there in September 2005. The lessons are held at the very appropraitely named Henry Box School.
It's a lovely little town, though since I was in classes for most of the days I didn't get to explore it too much. We'll be going back in November for Martin's melodeon classes though, and hopefully I'll have more to add after that.
