ADDITIONAL SPACES NOW AVAILABLE: ‘Trad Big Band’ participant call out: an online intensive exploring innovative new ways to play traditional and non-traditional music for young musicians from Shetland and beyond, aged between 11-26 years.
This is an opportunity to learn creative approaches to performance from pianist Harris Playfair and fiddle player Margaret Robertson together with a ‘house band’ of experienced tutors. All musicians are welcome, however those at grade 5 or above would get the best experience and we are particularly seeking fiddle players.
There will be four ‘online intensives’ on Sundays throughout March - 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th from 9:45 to 15:00. The project will culminate in the production of a collaborative video montage of the participants performing at home - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ebPnx3kl39g (Trad Big Band in 2020)
Attendance at each Sunday session is not mandatory but it will be the responsibility of participants to review materials and catch up in their own time.
