The first in the 2008 series of Wednesday lunchtime recitals hosted by the Friends of Wighton in Dundee will be on Wednesday 6th February at 1.15pm.

The recital will be held in the beautiful surroundings of the Wighton Heritage Centre, upstairs in Dundee Central Library, Wellgate, Dundee, DD1 1DB

This month’s performer is whistle player Helen Forbes, who is a regular at the Wighton Centre teaching the Saturday morning beginners whistle class.

Helen Forbes from Dundee is regarded as one of Scotland’s finest tin whistle players. Her father, Peter, a well known Highland piper who later took up uillean pipes, was a major influence on her playing but she was also lucky enough to be taught by Mary Bergin in Spiddal and also by her at the Willie Clancy School in Miltown Malbay.

Admission is free and there will be a retiring collection to support the work of the Friends of Wighton in making the treasures of the Wighton Collection accessible to the people of Dundee, Fife and Angus.
