Simon is beyond doubt this country's finest mandolin player, moving effortlessly between classical, traditional, jazz & blues. His dazzling technical skills grace all the music he plays. He's also a fine guitarist & fiddle player, with a delicious sense of humour & great teaching ability.
The workshop will cover all right & left hand techniques including position-shifting, tremolo, decoration, tone production & more. Simon will also introduce improvisation & ensemble playing with some easy parts to follow.
Some music (an entirely different repertoire from his last visit to Lewes) will be sent in advance.
