Join Adam for five days of exploration, inspiration and fun on the fiddle.

I’m very happy to be returning to Sabhal Mòr Ostaig for a second five day short course in August 2018.  The programme will again look at several areas of learning that complement each other.  The aim is to create a broader understanding of  fiddle playing through a holistic look at the beautiful world of music.  As well as  learning some gorgeous new tunes, the classes will take a microscopic look at harmony, rhythm and composing.  These will be supported by a  range of technical tips on how to improve your overall sound.  Expect to emerge feeling more confident and happy with your fiddle playing  journey, and a head buzzing with new tunes and excitement.

Adam comes from Errogie on the south shores of Loch Ness in the Highlands of Scotland.  He is one of Scotland’s most exciting fiddle players, composers and teachers in a thriving scene. He has been a part of many a successful and in demand band including: The Treacherous Orchestra,Session A9, Peatbog Faeries, Babelfish and Croft no. Five.  His tunes are perhaps his most impressive legacy and are played in music sessions and on YouTube videos all over the world.  Adam is now launching his own solo career, performing all his own tunes under his own brand and band of superb Scottish musicians.

There’s space for up to 20 people on the course – to ensure your place please book early!

This course is suitable for intermediate and advanced fiddle players. All tunes will be taught by ear, but sheet music will be provided at the end of the course.  Attendees are encouraged to bring their own fiddle, a recording device and an open mind.
