We are now running out of school youth monthly mandolin and fiddle workshops, in Strachur, supported by the Youth Music Initiative Scheme.
For mandolin tuition, FiddleFolk has joined forces with the Lanarkshire Mandolin Association. Alan Jones will travel from Hamilton for each of the Workshops. As well as playing for the Ceilidh Band Hot Toddy, Alan teaches at Glasgow Fiddle Workshop and for South Lanarkshire Council. So the youngsters will be benefiting from some of the best available tutors around!
This scheme, started in October 2009, brings together youngsters from different geographic areas, and of mixed ages and musical abilities.
