The Ealing sessions workshops were founded by Laurel Swift in 2000, and the class goes from strength to strength, regularly playing concerts and ceilidhs as the West London Folk Band. Laurel handed the class over to Deb Chalmers in September 2018, hence the new website! This website is designed to support the class, though of course anyone is welcome to learn the tunes and post questions.
The class is held upstairs at West London Trade Union Club, 33-35 High Street, Acton, London, W3 6ND. Parking in nearby streets is fairly simple, lots of buses pass the door and Acton Central Overground station is 5 minutes walk.
Monday evening term-times: 7:15pm – 9:15pm.
Cost: £8 per night.
Who comes? Bedroom musicians, beginner musicians, starting-again musicians, younger musicians, late bloomers, musicians that think they can only read the dots, musicians who worry that they can’t read the dots – you are all welcome.
The old website with the videos and tunes is available here.
