Mixed Instrument Workshop

I'm conducting a mixed instrument workshop in Peebles on Saturday 30th September 2017.

The workshop will consist of learning tunes and arranging them in an exciting and interesting way. It will be a collaboartive process, with each individual contributing to the overall sound. All the proceeds of the day will go to support a local community music school, Nomad Beat which teaches mainly Scottish traditional music to mainly young people but also to adults. It is run as a charity with the main mission of providing affordable music tuition. See the work of the school on its website,


All you have to do is declare your interest to the organiser, George Davidson: email him with your name. A minimum donation of £10 is suggested. Donations will be gratefully received on the day. Tea/coffee and biscuits/cakes supplied.


Music can be accessed through the links below. If you need any other forms of notation, please let me know.
