We’re heading north to explore the music of Orkney, Shetland and Norway!
Saturday 19th June 2021
Online Via Zoom
We have brought together three great musicians to share their expertise in the music of Orkney (Karen Tweed), Norway (Sturla Eide) and Shetland (Catriona Macdonald).
The workshops will take the form of masterclasses. There will be no in-depth tune-learning on the day, but each tutor will provide two or three tunes in advance (notation and recording), one of which will be suitable for less experienced players. You will be able to play the tunes with the tutor on the day, and aspects of the tunes will be used as illustrations.
The workshops are aimed at a wide range of levels. If you are a less experienced player, you won’t play along as much as more advanced students, but you’ll gain valuable insights to apply to your playing in the future. Complete beginners and players of other types of music are also very welcome.
