Learning Workshops

Ramona is sometimes asked to deliver group workshops for harp or fiddle. Broadstairs Folk Festival invited Ramona to host a workshop exploring the music of Eastern Europe. It was potentially a wide and challenging brief; to represent music from across East Europe and to include players from beginners through to advanced. The workshop in fact became a valuable opportunity for Ramona to collate and share some of the Latvian tunes passed on from her father Vilnis and to incorporate her love of Swedish, Bulgarian and Gypsy music. The event generated some wonderful jamming and musical contributions from the people who attended.


Storytelling Sessions

Tales from the book of life

Ramona also performs in schools with captivating storyteller Tony Edwards. Together they interweave timeless stories and music from around the world to stimulate and enrich the children’s imagination. Expect tales from merchants, soldiers, sailors from oral traditions encompassing India, Africa, Asia, the Ancient Greeks’.
