This course is an excellent opportunity to learn from one of the masters of Scottish fiddle playing. As a prolific composer and a band member of Capercaillie and Session A9, Charlie McKerron has built a reputation as an innovative and dexterous musician within the Scottish traditional music scene. The course will look at learning melodies by ear, improving techniques and rhythms, with a special emphasis on harmony to give participants an all-encompassing music learning experience. The course is best suited for intermediate to advanced level fiddle players.

Charlie McKerron has been a major figure in the traditional music scene since the early 1980’s and is internationally regarded as one of Scotland's finest fiddlers.  He is a key member of the highly successful Capercaillie but has collaborated with many other musicians and played with other noted bands such as SessionA9.  Charlie was brought up with the Northeast fiddle tradition learning from his father and Great uncle but has immersed himself in the Gaelic tradition with Capercaillie and in doing so has helped to bring this music to high acclaim on the International stage.
