New term, new tunes!

2017 is shaping up well so far! We’ve started work on our new material in all our groups and an exciting collaboration for the Trad Band (advanced group).

Friday 17th March – Tolbooth 15th Birthday Celebration!

The Tolbooth will celebrate it’s 15th birthday on Friday 17th March and out Trad Band are working on a one-off collaboration with the advanced Jazz group especially for the occasion. We have a selection of local and traditional tunes with a modern twist and some jazz interludes to share, it’s going to be brilliant.

We’ll post some music soon!

Tolbooth Trad Ceilidh 2016!

Our St Andrew’s Night ceilidh was another great night with all of our bands playing for the best ceilidh dances. And some of our advanced members learned and called the dances for our wonderful dancers.

Thanks to everyone for joining us and making it such a great night. We look forward to seeing you on Monday 30th January 2017 for a new term of music.

Here’s a video of Robbie and Harvey from our Trad Band accompanied by Assistant Tutor Christie. Other solos at the ceilidh included Hazel accompanied by Rhona and Archie accompanied by Innes.
