Nigel Gatherer's Old Time Workshops Nigel Gatherer's Old Time Workshops:
Old Time in Fife 6
(2017)

Old Time in Fife is an annual old time workshop, previously held in Newburgh, North Fife. This year we're moving southwards to the village of Strathmiglo, and for the first time there is a theme: music from the state of Georgia. The workshops particularly suit stringed instruments such as fiddle, mandolin, guitar, banjo, bass, etc, but other instruments would be welcome if you're keen. If you have any doubt about whether it will suit you, please get in touch (email me). The workshop timetable is below.

Session Books

Part of Old Time in Fife consists of an old-time session arranged for the last hour of the day (4-5pm). I have prepared a booklet of common old time jam session tunes which can be downloaded:

In your print dialogue control, print odd pages first, then turn paper over, choose reverse order and then print even pages. Finally, staple pages together to give you an A4 booklet.
