Saturday December 4th 1.00pm
At The Lemon Tree
A ‘Scaturday Live’ Event
Jimmy MacGuid comes to Aberdeen in the 1970’s to seek his fortune in the Oil Business. He meets a girl and falls in love but things don’t go to plan for Jimmy.
‘Scots Wha Rock’ is a very Scottish story told by SC&T tutors and students to an eclectic mix of rock songs and traditional instruments and tunes.
With an age range of thirteen to thirty plus (+++!) there’s something here for all ages.
Scottish Traditional Music and Song had a substantial influence in the roots of Rock n’Roll, especially in the Southern States of America (did you know the cross on the ’Stars and Bars’ is actually a St Andrews Cross?). Come and see a unique blend of history, culture and tradition!
There will be free performances throughout the day in all four of the main shopping centres; Bon Accord Centre, Union Square, the Trinity Centre and The Academy.
With traditional music and song from the likes of Fisher Folk, David Anderson, Dave Lorimer, Fearghal McCartan, Christine Kidd, Lewis Kane, Richard Ward and Alison Hester - if you're feeling the cold this weekend, toe tapping to some great tunes might be the best way to keep warm!
This year, to celebrate St Andrews Day, ACC are planning a huge ceilidh dance event which will take place simultaneously at Union Square and Bon Accord Centre - complete with satellite link up and radio coverage - and they would love SC&T participants to be involved.
They would like as many ceilidh dancers as possible to take part, so if you are free please come along and show off all the fabulous steps you've learnt at SC&T classes! And if you haven't ceilidh danced before, why not come and see how much fun it can be?
For more info, please contact the SC&T office.
If you do not yet know about this, and wish to avoid paying for on-street parking outside the school, the rear car park is accessed from the left-hand side at the front of the school (past the wheelie bins). To ensure easy access (and avoid dented bodywork!), please avoid causing an obstruction by parking in that area.
If you are still unsure, just ask Jenny at the SC&T desk and she will tell you how to access the rear car park and also how to get to your class from there.
With 15 young people between 7 and 14 signed up for the 3 days of workshops, the second YoungSC&T workshop was a great success. The tutors led by Hazel Thomson worked with the young fiddle players, flute players and guitar player and this culminated in a 20 minute spot on the Lemon Tree Stage on 23 October.
A vote of thanks to the tutor team of Hazel, Laura Lockyer, Kenny Hadden and Martin MacDonald, the volunteers Sandra Thomson, Winnie Middleton and Susan Kirkwood and to David Hunter who helped in the organisation.
The workshop was supported by the Lemon Tree/Aberdeen Performing Arts who suppled the venue and support. a grant from Creative Scotland, Morrisons (who allowed use of their car park) and to SC&T board and volunteers for helping it to happen.
The three day course will finish with a sharing for friends and families on Saturday 23 October at 12.30pm. All Young SC&T 2010 events will take place in the Lemon Tree, West North Street, Aberdeen.
