Traditional Scottish Music Workshop Evening Concert Sets The Mood For The Future
2nd November 2002
Yesterday's traditional music workshops day moved on to an evening concert in Mackays hotel, Wick that turned out to be one of the best musical evenings in Caithness.
With a most amazing line up of some of Scotland's most talented performers in Scottish Traditional music ranging from Scottish dance styles to traditional music with a cutting edge. The line-up of tutors all themselves currently working as performers and teachers included Ruby Randall, Marc Clement (Blazin Fiddles), Charlie McKerron (Capercaillie), Bruce McGregor (Blazin Fiddles) Iain Fraser (Principal fiddle tutor at Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama), Louise Mackenzie (Fiddler, Composer, Teacher), Gordon Gunn (Gordon Gunn Band and Session A9) and Addie Harper Jnr (musician, composer and local recording artist).
Playing with their respective classes from the day and then either individually or in impromptu pairings and groups they delighted the audience with renditions of many of their own and well known works rising to a great finale with all of the tutors on stage together.
Let's hope they can make it all happen again next year.........
