Tutor – Tom Spiers

North East Scottish Traditional Ballad Singing

The North East of Scotland is renowned for the wealth and diversity of its songs and ballads, which owe much to the oral traditions of the Farming and Travelling communities.

At this workshop Tom will share some of his wide repertoire of traditional ballads and will show you how to keep this diversity going by drawing on Source-Singer recordings and printed collections. You will learn how to reconstruct / modify songs and ballads without destroying their meaning or traditional feel.

The cost for the day is £25 (or £20 for Friends of SC&T)

Please enrol early!    (maximum 25 singers)
