Alistair McCulloch and Sean Gray


It was a great privilege for our workshop and for Strachur to have a visit from  world-class musicians, Alistair McCulloch and Sean Gray.

The day’s tuition was of the highest standard, combining fiddle, flute and guitar. Alistair showed how ornamentation could enrich and develop an ordinary tune.

Sean’s use of the flute required us to listen intently and then transpose the music of the flute to the fiddle. This method of tuition showed how listening enables one to join in with other instruments.

The evening concert succeeded in combining extraordinary technique and energy with intense lyricism.
