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.
This cold weather has really been starting to bother me lately. It seems never ending. I can't wait until our trips abroad over the summer. If the Sun won't come to Iron Broo then Iron Broo willl come to the Sun! I'm looking forward to Germany, Sicily and Italy later in the year. I was hoping for a chance to go to Canada too but that might have to wait until next year...we'll see.
Here's hoping Scotland gets a summer this year.
Fred and I are doing a photo shoot tomorrow morning for a publicity spot for a gig Iron Broo are playing at in May. I'll tell you more about that one shortly. Just so I tell you the correct info.
