CVFolk Freshers: Improvers’ Acoustic Guitar with Kevin Dempsey
Saturday 1st June 2024

Coventry’s internationally acclaimed guitarist, Kevin Dempsey is back to host another of his inspirational workshops for aspiring guitarists seeking ways to turn their chords and strums into something special.

Following his popular and engaging session last February, Kevin is making good on his promise to return and tutor another in a series of specialist ‘Folk Freshers’ Workshops at the Albany Theatre, Coventry which take place on the first Saturday morning of each month.

Regarded as one of the finest acoustic guitarists on the global folk and acoustic scene – and an experienced tutor – Kevin welcomes guitarists at all stages and of all ages, to join him and improve on their abilities. If you came to his first session, come and pick up some more ideas. Or it this is your first time, prepare to be amazed at just how well you can play with a little helpful and friendly guidance. Just bring your guitar and join the fun.

All age groups are welcome to join our Folk Freshers Workshops and we’d be especially keen to see young people taking this opportunity to pursue their journeys as musicians and performers. Each month, we feature different instruments and aspects of the folk arts. The 2-hour event now runs from the slightly earlier start time of 11am.

The sessions take place in one of the newly refurbished studios in the Albany Theatre building. Admission is £5 per person – book via the Box Office or just turn up on the day and pay at the desk.
