Scottish Fiddle Online with Charlie Mckerron: Autumn / Winter 2022START: 22 November 2022
END: 17 January 2023
COST (STUDENT): £50
Classes will run for an hour and a half through Zoom from 7:00pm to 8:30pm on Tuesdays over 5 non-consecutive weeks:-
22/11/22, 29/11/22, 20/12/22, 10/01/23 & 17/01/23
We are delighted to offer an opportunity for the fiddle-playing community to come together online on Tuesday evenings for five weeks with one of our regular tutors, Charlie Mckerron. With a mixture of tunes, some old and some new, we look forward to bringing you together on-screen from the comfort of your own home. Tunes will be taught by ear, and music will be provided afterwards.
As this course will be delivered via Zoom and participants will be muted whilst playing, it is open to any instrument.
Charlie Mckerron has been a major figure in the traditional music scene since the early 1980s 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 Session A9 (who will be returning to the College for a short course on 10/04/23). 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.
