Mairi ChaimbeulEvery harp player is interested in how to do Accompaniment and Arranging, so we list anything here that has to do with these topics. On this list. sorted alphabetically by title, we've marked how the workshop is presented: whether it's Live on Zoom during festival weekend or whether it's a Video (from 2021) on in our Archive (2020). We'll have about 50 "Live" workshops and events during festival weekend so don't worry if you miss one or there are 2 workshops on at the same time that you want to go to. We're recording them and will post them on the workshop pages on Somerset Online, soon after the festival. All of the "live" workshops will be held on Zoom. To see the times for the Zoom workshops, see our Live Events page. If the workshop is marked as "Archive" you have to have bought access to this content. You can add Archive access at anytime before the festival.
