The Band on the Wall in Manchester are holding a 10 week course in Irish traditional fiddle styles taught by rising folk star Emma Sweeney.

There are two classes, one for beginners, the other for more advanced students and both will get a chance to play in front of a live audience on the Band on the Wall stage at the end of the course, should they wish. The fun starts on 14th April. Full details from the link at the bottom.

They Call Me Mellow Yellow

The first Mellow Yellow on the Pier event takes place in Blackpool in the Victorian Sunlounge on the North Pier Promenade on Saturday, 15 May 2010. (Way too many 'ins' and 'ons' in that last sentence.)

The line up includes Edwina Hayes, The Roots Union, Troubadour, Spiral Scouts, Andy Stones, Karima Francis, Lupa Tom, Jon Brindley, Dirty Scavenger, Steph Fraser, Karl Culley and The Magdalenas.

Tickets are available now from HMV Blackpool, the Arndale in Manchester and from the link below, but there are only 500 available, so get a move on. How
