T09 Chasing the Breeze

5-days from Sat 6th to Wed 10th April - 9:00am

Merchiston Courses - Classroom Space


This course will focus on tunes that have travelled across borders from country to country. We often find or hear a tune and think, "That’s familiar!” and it turns out to be a tune heard in one country, taken to another and slightly changed on the way. So we´ll “chase the breeze” in search of these tunes.
