We are pleased to announce that we will be holding an event celebrating Frank Kidson and his legacy in his hometown of Leeds. This event will be held at the Leeds Central Library on the 14th November 2015 and admission for the entire day is free.
The day commences at 12 noon with an in-depth presentation “Finding Five Finger Frank” during which we will talk about Frank Kidson and his contribution to the world of folk song collecting, the source singers that contributed to his collection and we’ll also talk a little about the songs and tunes that we feature in the show “The Search for Five Finger Frank” and how we selected and arranged them for the album.
Between 1.30pm and 5pm we will be holding workshops on the songs and tunes from the Frank Kidson publications and manuscripts. Participants will have the opportunity to learn choruses, harmonies and dance tunes galore from this outstanding collection.
Finally the day will culminate in a performance of the show “The Search for Five Finger Frank” by Pete Coe and Alice Jones, taking place at 6pm where you will be heartily encouraged to utilise all of your newly acquired knowledge and join in with us at every available opportunity!!
