GFW 25 Years

GFW 25 Years Tunebook

In 1990 Glasgow was in the full throes of the European City of Culture, and Jo Miller, then a community education worker, advertised fiddle classes in the Glasgow Art Centre off the Broomielaw. The classes were instantly thriving, and the Glasgow Fiddle Workshop (GFW) grew to be one of a major network of organisations teaching traditional music in Scotland. Since then, the GFW has welcomed not just fiddlers, but mandolin players, whistlers, guitarists, ukuleles, banjos and bodhrans into their fold, and the future looks bright.

To celebrate their 25th anniversary, Nigel Gatherer has compiled a collection of new tunes by GFW tutors, current and past, and it is a fitting tribute to a remarkable group of people: the GFW.
