Transpennine Branch

Branch Information

We are a friendly, mixed ability group, meeting for tutor-led workshops held in the Shipley/Riddlesden area three or four times a year, with member-hosted play-togethers held in homes.  Tutor-approved music from workshops is posted on Dropbox for all members to access and bring to play-togethers.  Our summer AGM and Christmas/New Year events are free and feature a bring-and-share lunch, together with familar tunes.  Our workshops cover a wide range of music, with previous workshops tutored by Gwennan Gibbard (Welsh), Wendy Stewart (Scottish), Mary Dunsford (Cumbrian), Ailie Robertson (Quebecois), Jennifer Port (Scottish) and Tamsin Dearnley (Jazz).
