If you want to learn the basics of playing an instrument EVERYONE can afford (and already own!) why not try spoons? John Roberts is running a spoons workshop at the Festival. John says all you need to bring with you is a pair of identical spoons, with a flared base (i.e. don't use spoons with handles that narrow toward the end). They should have a reasonably deep hollow cup. Heavier spoons will sit in your hand more comfortably, and thin spoons sound tinny.Dessert spoons and soup spoons have a good tone. Don't use silver spoons - they "ring" too much, are generally too high pitched and dent easily.
