PLAYING DULCIMER IN BELGIUM? Belgium: Summer folk camp at Gooik, 21st-26th August 2009. Gooik, Domein Uidekrij, Bronnenweg 2 Belgium
Impulscentrum voor Folk en Jazz Huis van de Levende Traditie Wijngaardstraat 5, 1755 Gooik Tel: 0032 2 532 28 38 Fax: 0032 2 452 34 94 email@example.com
The 31th annual practice of traditional folk music in Belgium also features a five days intensive workshop hammered dulcimer under the guidance of Christie Burns (USA).
Other sessions are: hurdy-gurdy, Flemish pipes, diatonic and chromatic accordion, hummel, fife, violin, mouth organ, dance, voice, guitar in DADGAD, music ensemble and calligraphy.
The practice takes place at Gooik, a small rural commune in the ‘pajottenland’ at 20 kilometers distance from Brussels. This is the countryside where the famous ‘geuze-lambiek’ is brewed. MAP GOOIK (CLICK!)
About 27 workshops take place at different venues in the village with 400 participants. This means that folk is taking over the day-to-day life of the local community for five days. You camp out on three camping sites in the village. We take care of the catering (vegetarian catering possible). Every evening two concerts take place in the local Romanesque church. In the late evening a folk group takes over and plays folk ball in the central venue. There is also a day and an evening program for children.
Our program: You can visit our site at MUZIEKMOZAIEK (CLICK!) (look for ‘traditionele stage’) or look at our program: PROGRAM STAGE. (CLICK!) (Sorry it’s in Flemish)
You can sign up from 20 april 2009 (not before !!!!). Please fill in the form and send it towards: Mail-adress (CLICK!) (info@muzmoz)
