Dates and times
For players of violin, viola, cello and string bass.
Alasdair Fraser and Natalie Haas will hold a special two-day Trad Music Workshop/Masterclass for intermediate to advanced string players based on the fiddle music of Scotland and beyond. Although the weekend is aimed at adult players, teenagers are most welcome. The goal is to explore playing traditional music in a group with emphasis on arrangement ideas and the techniques that give traditional music its particular flavour. We will look at elements of language and dance, plus putting fiddle tunes and arrangement ideas together to form a larger medley. All music will be taught by ear but music will be provided to take away. Daniel Thorpe (fiddle) and Trish Strain (cello) will be assistant tutors, on hand to make sure that all ability levels are covered.

This workshop will take place in the Exhibition Hall at the Concert Hall.
