Great Day in Strachur!

Saturday 4th March at last! What a great day we had with tutor Amy Geddes leading our workshop. Amy made us aware of the importance of timing, beat and rhythm and gave us a few ideas on how to improve these aspects of our playing. She also gave us an insight into improvisation. All this, as well as teaching the group one of her own compositions.                                                               Having viola, accordion, mandolin and guitar as well as fiddles helped make the day go with a swing. It was also Ishbel’s birthday, what a way to spend it!
Thanks to Amy Geddes and everyone who came along for the day. I’m sure there will be more news to follow.You can here us playing Cruden Bay here.
