As we can’t meet in person to remember Margaret, we’ve set up this page where you can leave memories and stories. You can also respond to other comments.
Our great friend Margaret Littlewood sadly passed away on July 17th. Margaret had been a student at SMG since the 1990s, and she was one of the volunteers who helped to set up the Scots Fiddle Festival. She did an enormous amount of work to help the Fiddle Festival develop and grow into the world-class event that it has become. In classes, on both fiddle and mandolin, she was always keen to get involved in all class activities and always helped to support her fellow students and tutors, regularly contributing her own tune arrangements to mixed instrument classes. Margaret was a regular member of a variety of SMG groups playing in the community, and always volunteered to help out behind the scenes at SMG events. She did all this with great care and a fine sense of humour, without shying away from pointing out our mistakes! She had many good friends at SMG, and we send our condolences to her family and all those who were fortunate enough to know her.
