Sabhal Mòr Ostaig are delighted to welcome the very talented musician Innes Watson to their Short Course Programme for 2018.
In this new course, Innes will facilitate a collective journey from individual musicians to ensemble, mutually learning and teaching each other common material in the Scottish traditional idiom with influences from contemporary Scotland.
All ages, abilities and instrumentation welcome - working with what we've got will be the key idea and what everyone will take away will be confidence to play together and find a way to work with anyone they choose!
Innes Watson, from Glasgow, is an award-winning multi-instrumentalist with over ten years of contemporary and traditional Scottish music performance, recording, teaching and producing experience. He grew up in the Scottish Borders in very supportive musical surroundings encouraging an extremely eclectic mix of skills, abilities, interests and accolades that combine to make Innes one of the most highly-regarded and sought-after musicians on the scene today.
Innes also teaches at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (having graduated from there with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Scottish Music in 2006) and in 2011 he won the title of “Instrumentalist of the Year” at the MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards.
