New instrument classes
Friends of Wighton will be running a short series of instrumental classes on Thursday evenings on 10th, 17th and 24th November in the Wighton Heritage Centre, Central Library. Beginner fiddle class, tutored by Karen Hannah, will run from 4pm – 5pm, Red Hot Chilli Piper, Kyle Howie, will tutor chanter from 5pm – 6pm, and, from 6pm – 7pm, Paul Campbell will take the guitar class.
The Friends already run highly successful and busy Saturday classes in fiddle. whistle, medieval harp and Gaelic song, and a Scots song class on Tuesday afternoons.
“Our fiddle students are now ‘improvers’ and we have had lots of requests for a beginners’ class, and for chanter and guitar classes too, so we thought it worth running a short programme pre-Christmas with a view to having regular classes in the New Year.” said Sheena Wellington, Honorary Librarian of the Wighton Collection. “And we do have several fiddles and guitars available for people who would just like to give it a try before they buy, as well!”
Fees for all classes are £5/ £2.50 concessions. Pre-booking firstname.lastname@example.org or 01382 221242
