T08 Strathspey Buffet

Gillian Fleetwood

Merchiston Courses - Classroom Space


5 Day Course (Saturday to Wednesday)

The Mighty Strathspey! This tune type is unique to Scotland, but within it is a complex and rewarding world of snaps, skips and attitude. They are great fun to dance to, to sing and to play on the harp. As well as this, Strathspeys reflect fascinating geographical and historical contexts, which we will also explore. This will be a fun and varied look at this most fascinating Scottish tune type, from the feisty Gaelic Puirt to the artistic flair of the East Coast style and much else in between, as well as ways to make the most of this on harp.
