Karen Hannah and Alan Small

On Saturday 18th Feb, the monthly Cappuccino Concert in Dundee’s Wighton Centre will showcase two local traditional musicans, fiddler Karen Hannah and accordion player Alan Small.

Karen Hannah is a well-known fiddle player and teacher whose music has taken her across Europe and as far afield as New Zealand and South Korea. As well as her solo and duo work, Karen plays in several duos and bands, and is fiddle tutor at the Wighton Heritage Centre. Her recent appearances include two acclaimed concerts at Glasgow’s Celtic Connections.

Former All Scotland Accordion Champion, Allan Small, is probably best known as leader of the famous Lomond Ceilidh Band but he is also an inspiring teacher.

The duo provide a journey through the traditional and contemporary music of Scotland in a performance laced with humour.

The Wighton Centre is a purpose built performance and study space in Dundee Central Library, which contains and displays the internationally important Wighton Collection of old Scottish music books. The Friends of Wighton organise regular concerts and classes in the Centre.

The concert on Saturday starts at 10.30am with complimentary cofffee and newspapers, and the music will be from 11 to 12. Admission is £5.
