The 20th meeting will take place on 19th November, and will be a special one. Jelma van Amersfoort, guitar, will be joined by Paul Sparks, mandolin, for some historical mandolin and guitar duets. Many members will remember Jelma’s previous visit to SLEGS, and will be delighted to see her again. Paul Sparks has written the two most important books on the history of the mandolin, and will answer any questions you have on its development and repertoire.
The venue is Chris Elmes’s place – 1F1, 25 Haddington Place, EH7 4AF (the left side of Leith Walk between Annandale St and MacDonald Rd). Parking is unrestricted off Leith Walk on weekends; MacDonald Road or Hopetoun Crescent is the best area.
Time: 1pm for a 1.30pm start. Two or three hours, depending on contributions from members.
There will be a charge of £1 a head for the use of the venue.
