Hi everybody!


I am very excited to announce that I will be running online Scottish and Scandinavian tune workshops in the run up to Christmas, with a view to doing more after Christmas should there be enough interest. The workshops will be for all instruments at intermediate level and above, and will focus mainly on repertoire with some technical pointers where necessary.


I am a highly experienced fiddle teacher and performer with over 15 years experience under my belt. I was fortunate enough to be part of the SNAP (Sweden, North Pennines and Ploermel) music exchange programme which consisted of musicians from Halsingland in Sweden, Brittany and the North of England. It's fair to say SNAP kickstarted my love for Scandinavian music and I was taught by some of the best folk musicians from Sweden who were truly inspiring. I would love to have the opportunity to pass on the tunes and skills that I have learned over the years.


I have a broad knowledge of Scottish traditional music and I am now based in Glasgow, Scotland. I am part of iconic Scottish band, the Tannahill Weavers, with whom I have toured with internationally including the US and Canada. I attended Lews Castle College UHI where I studied under Anna-Wendy Stevenson, Iain MacDonald of Battlefield Band fame and many other luminaries of the Scottish music scene.


The workshops will begin on November 17 and will run through until December 14. They will run weekly from 6pm until 7pm UK time and will cost £40 for four workshops.
