Saturday morning playing is back!! We’ve all been missing our Saturday morning fix of tunes and, with no sign of classes being able to start in-person again any time soon, classes are moving online.
Obviously, the format will be slightly different, but hopefully still enjoyable 🙂
A mixed instrument class will run 11am – 12 on Saturday mornings using Zoom, starting Saturday 9th January. The link is below. To begin with MoragAnne will be taking the classes, with the hope of introducing guest leaders on a regular basis. she’ll be teaching a couple of slow tunes (for those who like time to think as they play, or for those who want to try out learning by ear) and then a faster tune. Music will be shared to the screen on the day.
If participants wish to contribute financially they can donate to MoragAnne’s paypal account https://www.paypal.me/moraganneelder1

MoragAnne, one of our most respected, and busiest, local musicians and teachers will explore the social and cultural history of Scotland through fiddle tunes taken from the new educational resource “Fiddle Music of the Wighton”.
Last Monday, the Wighton Centre was turned into a recording studio by recording enginner Bob Turner, to record some tracks for the forthcoming limited edition CD produced by the Friends of WIghton as part of the fundraising for the Sir Jimmy Shand Collection.
Tracks were recorded from Mark Spalding playing a Ronald Stevenson composition on the harpsichord, the Wighton Singers, Ellie McDonald reading poetry, Simon Chadwick playing the replica Queen Mary harp, and Morag Anne Elder on the fiddle with Katie playing cello.
At least two of the tracks are the first ever recordings (the harpsichord and harp track). Other tracks are being recorded at Gardyne Studios, and also some tracks will be donated by other artists from their published CDs.
If you missed claiming the CD as a perk on our Indiegogo crowdfunding last month, you will still be able to buy your copy when the strictly limited edition is released.
The Lunchtime Recital at Wighton Heritage Centre, Central Library, Wellgate Centre, Dundee, on Wednesday 4th February, will feature well-known local fiddle teacher Morag Anne Elder & 17 year old Joanna Stark.
The Tayport duo will brighten a winter day with Music for the Season played on fiddle, cello and guitar.
1.15pm Admission free, donations welcome.
