Workshop Report 26th November


Another great rainy day productively used for music practice in good company.

Happy Birthday ?

Scratchy Noises Workshop 26-11-2011

We spent some time on Willafjord  and I think most folk got the shape of this tune.  We then tried out Flowers Of Edinburgh before a tutored session in the afternoon.

Thanks to Nigel Gatherer for the excellent guidance, to everyone for listening , being such good fun, and being supportive to others. Thanks to Peter for the excellent lunch, and to Laurie’s Bar for having us.

Larking about at the Back - Typical !

The feedback was excellent overall.  Including ‘Looking forward to the next one!’ ‘Are we having another soon?’

All comments will be taken into account when planning future events.


A few of us were so inspired after the workshop that we decided to go to Babbity Bowster’s for the session, as we were invited to join them on a previous excursion. They were incredibly welcoming and made us feel at home and encouraged us to play a few tunes which they joined in with. We all had a great time  – many thanks to all the Girls and Guys at Babitty’s.

    Great day Valerie, thank you for organising it and also thanks to Nigel for keeping the tone at just the right level.

    Babbity’s was great too. Yes, we have a long way to go but it was definitely one of the most friendly and welcoming groups I’ve attended and they were really encouraging.

    Can’t wait for the next one.
