End of Term Concert!

Hello Everybody!!

Hope you are all well and looking forward to the Christmas holidays! We are sad not to be able to finish the term off in the usual way with some performances from you all at the Tolbooth. However, we have made a wee video for you instead.

We hope you enjoy it and wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas. Here’s to a great 2021 and we look forward to seeing you all soon!

Gillian, Dan, Christie and Katie.

Next week we will post our end of term tutors concert. Gillian, Dan, Christie and Katie have all filmed some music from home which we have made into a wee concert for you. Check back here next week to watch it.

Welcome to new tutor Gillian Frame!


A warm welcome to our new tutor Gillian Frame! Gillian is joining us as co-lead tutor on fiddle, song and groupwork.

With loads of teaching, performing and creative/recording experience, Gillian is a perfect choice to help all of our participants develop their trad music skills.

Gillian lives in Glasgow with her husband (and singer/songwriter) Finlay Napier and their wee girl Lucy who plays some awesome electric guitar!
