Pipe and Tabor Beginners Workshop

9 to 11 Feb 2024 in York for a Winter Warmer:

York would be from the evening of Friday 9th February to early afternoon on Sunday 11th, the theme Saturday onwards is Shakespeare “First Folio Masquerade”. Pipe and Tabor Beginners’ Workshop slot if you pre-book by contacting us, if you like you can choose Taborers Hunt the Squirrel, or something else from the Taborers Society Youtube.

Have fun learning to play pipe and tabor, the original instrument for morris dancing since the 15th century!

You’ll need a tabor pipe in high D, you can get one for £9.95 from http://www.pipeandtabor.org/the-pipe-and-tabor/buying-a-tabor-pipe/generation-tabor-pipes/

Also you’ll need a tabor or something similar to hit with a stick.

We’ll all be very supportive and encouraging to help people learn this super instrument.

We’ll look at holding the stick with our leading hand, the pipe in the other, attaching the tabor, and, if you don’t choose something else then learning the Beaux of London City morris tune.

Here are videos of the tune slow and normal speed.

This workshop is organized by the Taborers Society, why not join for a one-off £10, details are here. It’s one of the Taborers Winter Warmer events.
