Falkirk Community Trust Arts team received fantastic news this week as it was confirmed the Falkirk Traditional Music project would take to the stage on Sunday 18 January as part of Celtic Connections. The Open Stage Slot takes place at The Royal Concert Hall, Glasgow on Sunday from 5pm – 7pm.
Falkirk Traditional Music Project offers pupils from P4 – S6 the opportunity to learn a traditional Scottish instrument. The Traditional Music Project offers tuition and the loan of instruments at no cost to the pupils. We currently offer tuition in the Mandolin, Chanter, Accordion, Whistle, Bagpipes, Fiddle and Bodhran. The lessons are taught by professional traditional musicians after school at Camelon Education Centre.
Within the project there is the opportunity for pupils to progress into one of our Trad Bands. As part of the Trad Band pupils have the opportunity to perform at various concerts and events throughout the year.
If you or someone you know is interested in joining the project, taster sessions are being held on Friday 23 January at Camelon Education Centre. The taster sessions will allow new pupils to try all instruments on offer (chanter, bagpipes, mandolin, bodhran, tin whistle fiddle and accordion). Please contact Gillian Mooney if you would like more information about Falkirk Traditional Music Project or to book a place on the taster session.
