You probably know what a session is, but just in case you don’t – it’s when a group of musicians meet up informally to play some tunes for fun. It’s usually in a bar, they’re pretty welcoming and visiting musicians are welcome to join in. You don’t know who’ll be there, what instruments or what they’ll play but it’s usually good fun.
Throughout the year we have a prgoramme of festivals and workshops:
Niel Gow Fiddle Festival – March – A weekend long fiddle festival celebrating the music of famous local fiddler and composer, Niel Gow. Concerts, workshops and sessions.
Pete Clark’s week long fiddle schools – May & September – Daily tuition in fiddle combined with musical tours, meeting local fiddle society, maybe a trip to the Indian restaurant and the odd pub session. People of all ages travel from all over the world to take part.
Perthshire Amber – November – Weekend programme of concerts, sessions, workshops and day trips exploring the music of Perthshire and of local musician Dougie MacLean.
