Join us for three days of music making in the glorious Halsway Manor in Somerset.  This will be our fifth Real Roots! course and we welcome both familiar and new faces.  This year we will be focusing on the music from across Europe – France, Italy, Spain and the Netherlands. There’s lots to explore and we will be looking at everything from popular dance and song tunes through to some more lengthy works. 

We’re delighted that David Jarratt-Knock will be with us and he will be running some ‘loud wind’ groups. As ever, there’s opportunities for playing recorders, viols, violin, shawms, curtals and bagpipes ….. and lots more besides! A feature of the course will be for participants to play on some of Piva’s vast range of instruments, such as crumhorns, bagpipes and Great Consort recorders.
