The National Centre of Excellence in Traditional Music is pleased to announce the dates for this year’s whole school concert tour. This year’s tour is fairly widespread, partly following on from last year’s S6 tour, but also due to an exciting recording project the Centre has been involved in this session. There are shows in Dunoon, Glasgow, Birnam and Pitlochry before the tour concludes with the final concert at Plockton High School.
The concerts will feature the 22 students in various combinations, including them playing all together in a powerful finale. The Centre teaches accordion, clarsach, fiddle, pipes, piano, guitar, whistle, flute, and Scots and Gaelic song, and all of these will feature strongly on the programme. All of the youngsters are multi-talented and there are a few other instruments involved as well, so there really is something for everybody in the show.
Tickets can be reserved by phoning The National Piping Centre on 0141 353 0220 and payment is on the door, cash only.
