NE Fiddle Workshop, Series No 3

21 Jan 2009

Do something different

Series No. 3 workshop will be a North East Fiddle workshop with Paul Anderson on Saturday 7th March.

Paul Anderson is already considered something of a legend in the time honoured tradition of Scottish fiddle music.  He can trace his teaching lineage directly to Niel Gow, “The Father of Scottish Fiddle Music”.
A regular on Scottish television and radio, Paul has toured extensively and has recorded seven solo albums. Paul has tutored for SC&T in the past and his classes are invariably fully booked - sign up early to avoid disappointment!

The workshop is a great opportunity to learn something different in a small group environment. There's also a performance/session opportunity at the end of the day in the pub over the road for all tutors and participants, which should be fun!
