There are still some places left in accordion, banjo, bodhran, ceilidh dance, clarsach*, fiddle*, flute, guitar, harmonica, mandolin*, pipes,†song and whistle. But hurry,†many classes are filling up fast so register now to avoid disappointment!

May 11 - May Festival: Day Of Song
A DAY OF SONG
'A Day of Song' aims to raise the profile of contemporary traditional singing as an art form and to raise awareness of the rich resources available to today's singers of the Greig-Duncan Folk Song Collection, gathered here in the North-East of Scotland between 1904 and 1914.
We aim to create a celebration and encourage young singers, and those new to the art, to see the potential for artistic development and new interpretations of this repertoire.
