Mad March Workshop Report


Yesterday we held a mixed instrument workshop at the Crowwood Hotel.

Workshop March 2012

Nigel Gatherer did an excellent job of leading a range of different instruments and abilities in a few tunes that were new to most of us.  He included wee stories about the tunes and was really good at making sure everyone was included.  Sometimes we re-played a tune a bit more slowly to make sure everyone had a chance of getting it.  It was all very laid back and sociable.

I think the venue was very suitable with parking, plenty of space for all of us and our instruments, lunch tables laid out, and no interruptions from outside noise.

I do hope everyone got something out of the day and I look forward to playing the tunes with you again soon.

    Really enjoyable day. Even I, as a non-musician, was able to learn something. Many thanks to Nigel for the tuition and many thanks to Valerie for the organising!

    Thoroughly enjoyed the whole day Valerie. The venue was excellent. Particularly enjoyed the choice of tunes. Learned a lot from Nigel’s tuition. Thanks to both of you for a great musical day!

    Looking forward to seeing a good few of you on Saturday. Been really busy, not least with trying to play the fiddle “properly” so not been able to make it to Mondays.
