Rehearsal Video from Workshop

It’s hard to believe it’s already been a week since we were first gathered together to begin our Scottish musical journey with Alasdair and Natalie!

If you’re looking for a video to guide you through those great tunes you learned just a week ago, look no further!  Many thanks to Jasmin Dickerson for your effort!  Photos are coming in daily now, and we’ll do our best to share them, too.  (Just click on “video” above!)

Happy practicing! and stayed tuned on news for next years’ workshop!!

Fiddle raid in progress, lead by the fearless Alasdair!

One might wonder why a piper is featured on the Fiddle Club website… Well, she’s no ordinary piper, and she’s the leader of the club’s youth band!  In August, she competed as part of the Northwest Junior Pipe Band, in the World Championships in Glasgow, Scotland.

Overall, the band came in 6th, and they were featured on King 5 news- here’s the link so you can see them in action. Vienna will be the young lady in the front row: http://www.king5.com/story/news/local/2015/08/15/nw-junior-pipe-band-places-6th–world-championships/31783447/
