Mixed Rhythm - Spring '24

Craig Spink is a drummer and percussionist known for playing in the folk group The Paddy Buchanan Band. From playing at Celtic Connections to the Scottish Parliament, performing with The Paddy Buchanan band has given Craig the opportunity to have a deeper understanding and connection with the traditional/folk music scene in Scotland. Craig also plays for indie rock outfit The Sun Day and can often be found spending his weekends travelling up and down the country gigging with the band and recording new material to release via independent Aberdeen based label: Fat Hippy Records.

Craig's students can expect an introduction into the world of percussion and how it fits into both traditional and contemporary music as a whole with his  ultimate goal being to show students that everyone can find their own rhythm!

Price for the term is: £95 - this can be paid in one lump sum when you sign up, or in 3 monthly instalments - you can choose your preference when you sign up.
