This workshop is open to all players: melody, accompaniment, percussion. We will work with Rick over the weekend to develop and arrange a number of pieces; ceilidh sets, a song or two and tunes old and new, all with a traditional feel. Music will be circulated in advance.
Please bring your own ideas as well your instrument(s) - this will be an interactive workshop and a unique opportunity to work with and learn from one of the best and most inspiring arrangers in the country.

 the tutor
Rick Taylor is regarded as one of the finest Ensemble Leaders and composer/arrangers on the scene today. Since relocating to Skye in 2002 he has become an integral part of the Scottish music scene, not just in traditional music but across the whole musical vista. His inspiring and inclusive way of teaching makes sure he gets the very best from his musicians and the music produced is testament to his approach to music making.
