The workshop is principally for members of the Caithness Big Band, however, if space allows, other interested musicians may take part (please contact us ).

The ancient folklore tradition of ‘buying the wind' was common across Caithness and the fishing routes of the North Atlantic. The tradition involved sailors purchasing 3 knots of thread, rope or fabric, to be undone as wind is required, but the mariner is instructed on no account to untie the third knot, as it may start a hurricane.
