Scotland comes to Everett May 1st, as the Northwest Scottish Fiddlers return for a repeat performance at the main Everett Public Library auditorium, downtown Everett. Music from Scotlalnd, Nova Scotia, and the Shetland Islands will be featured, on fiddles, guitar, piano and string bass, under the musical direction of Calum MacKinnon, long time Scottish fiddler, from Edmonds. There will something for everyone- including solos, family acts, dancing, and singing. The club has performed to standing room only crowds at Seattle’s Folklife and other venues, and looks forward to again sharing our music with Everett.”
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.
Class begins- with enthusiastic musicians ready to learn and play!
