Scottish Folk Day 2023 – Aberdeen

September 23 @ 09:30 - 17:00 CET (Europe)

We have worked very hard to secure funding to ensure there are as little barriers as possible to folk participating in our Scottish Folk Day in Aberdeen. For this event, we are giving a tiered pricing option. This includes a free option, a £20 donation option, a £40 donation option or a £60 donation option. All funds we raise from this event will go right back into providing opportunities in Scottish Traditional music for our communities. If you wish to donate and are signing up more than one person on a Thinkific course, you can pay for the extra participant here.

To mark a new nationwide day of traditional music under the banner of the Traditional Music Forum, two leading NE Scotland folk music community organisations are teaming up with the Elphinstone Institute, University of Aberdeen to host an exciting day of workshops and performances with some of Scotland’s leading folk musicians.

The day of singing, instrumental and group workshops will include networking over lunch and will culminate in an informal performance of the songs and tunes. Workshops will be targeted at the intermediate and advanced levels to develop individual skills and provide an opportunity to play and sing together with others. We are anticipating more than 50 participants.

The workshops will be inclusive of a range of age and gender, with a sliding scale of ticket price reflecting the ability of participants to pay in the current cost of living crisis.

The line-up of 6 tutors will include many of those world-class musicians who have worked recently with Scottish Culture & Traditions and The Dee and Don Ceilidh Collective.
