The Outside Track Summer School

Mar 31, 2016

The first ever Outside Track Summer School will be running from July 24 – 29th in Cromarty, in the Scottish Highlands!

Participants will receive group and individual tuition in their chosen instrument (harp, fiddle, accordion, flute/whistle and guitar), plus enjoy group singing and stepdance workshops. By keeping the numbers very low – only max 6 participants per tutor, individual needs can be attended to, and personal focus given.

Teaching will be a combination of tradition and technique tailored to suit the participant level, with time to address both technical issues such as improving dexterity, left hand coordination, etc, alongside traditional elements – ornamentation, tempos, rhythm, and of course, lots of time to learn new tunes.

There will be classes every morning from 10am until 1pm, then masterclasses, vocal sessions and stepdance workshops in the afternoon. In the evenings we will have informal sessions, storytelling etc, a ceilidh, a student concert and a concert by The Outside Track.

Residents will have accommodation, full board and all tuition and evening activities at Cromarty Brewery included in the course price.

Come for a week of classes, concerts, ceilidhs and craic!
