The fiddlers of Falkirk fiddle Workshop

Falkirk Fiddle Workshop is looking for people to join them in keeping the flame of Scottish traditional music burning brightly.

The group was founded in April 1997 with the aim of promoting the performance, study and appreciation of Scottish fiddle music and other related styles in the Falkirk area. The friendly bunch provides tuition for all abilities from complete beginner to advanced and all age groups are welcome on a Tuesday evening in Larbert’s Station hotel where the members meet.

The evening begins with an informal group session with classes beginning at 7.45 p.m. and running through until 9.30 p.m. Afterwards all members are welcome to join in an informal jam session in the hotel lounge.

Tutoring for the beginners’ group is shared between Lorna Swan and Sandy Harvey, while the intermediate and advanced groups are tutored by Gavin Marwick and Dougie Lawrence. For more information visit www.falkirkfiddle
