Welcome to the new website for the Ealing sessions Monday class! This is where we’ll post videos and sheet music for the tunes that we learn from September 2018. The old website will still be available here. I will probably tweak the format a little in the first few weeks, to make sure that everyone can find what they’re looking for.
This term will run from September 10th to December 10th, with a break for half term on October 22nd. At the moment, the plan is to play for the Ealing Country Dance Club in December 3rd, and I’m trying to sort out a date for doing a Christmas concert at Gunnersbury Park. Watch this space!
