This week is the start of the new term for the Scottish Culture and Traditions Adult classes in traditional music and culture. Know locally as SC&T (scat). Tomorrow evening will be the start of the new accordion class for players of all levels wishing to learn or brush up on their accordion skills. I'll be taking the class 7pm till 9pm at Harlaw academy, Albyn Place, Aberdeen. Places are limited to a maximum size of 16 people so if you are interested contact SC&T direct on their website www.scottishculture.org http://www.scottishculture.org
If you have any pieces you'd like to learn (meant to be Scottish music but I'm flexible) let me know I'll do my best to help you.
If you need a new accordion or for the best hand made Italian instruments, accessories and digital accordions visit accordioncloud.scot. Or check out Ebay or the local papers for a cheapo squeeze box to practice on before shelling out on the best.
I hope to see you there.
Fred and I had a great gig at the weekend at Skene hall. A farewell party for an Aberdeen Lass off to Toronto to seek her fortune across the pond. It left us on a high for the rest of the weekend but as the rule says, what goes up, must come down and I am suffering the man flu this week. Michty me. I'm aff ma legs wi it!
I've a sair back, a sair heid and my limbs are aching. The paperwork is piling up, the accordion is screaming for a tune but the body says nae chunce!
I think myself lucky I'm nae somebody that gets nae weel too much. It must be that time of year again. Not to worry, I've got the log burner on, a pot o' broth on the go and a hale box o Lemsips.
Let the cleansing begin!
