In December 2015 John gave a fantastic workshop on Fandangos and Tangos. Towards the end of the day when we were all pretty exhausted he showed us this really nice and not too hard variation for playing Tangos.
Cante Accompaniment is pretty daunting for most of us, but we all had a good stab at it during this great workshop.
John Walsh gave a great day long workshop on Solea and Buleria. He showed some really difficult but beautiful falsettas by Diego del Morao. I think it will be a while be for any of us can play them as fluidly as John but its always good to have a challenge.
We spent a great Sunday learning how to Accompany a Chico in Solea and Buleriá.
In 2013 we had a really nice Christmas Peña at the Klondyke in Levenshulme. Leo gave a fantastic workshop in the afternoon. He showed some Tangos rhythms that he not only played but filmed for our enjoyment.

Here is a video from a video from back in 2013. I kept it as a private link for ages, but now that Brenda who dances here is sadly not with us anymore it seems appropriate to share the clip for everyone to enjoy. I remember at the time she had a bus pass around her neck which she was later really embarrassed about. She was a really inspiring dancer, teacher and passionate about developing a vibrant scene for Flamenco in Manchester.
