YOUNG SCAT, Aberdeen, AIYF :  27th - 31st  JULY 2015

(forms and info out soon...) 

Now in its third year Young SC&T is proving to be an ideal platform for young traditional musicians to learn, explore and develop their knowledge and playing as part of the AIYF traditional music project that includes the Splore and Ceol Mor initiatives. Aimed at children from primary 4 – primary 7 this is an exciting opportunity for a week of playing led by leading traditional music tutors, including Sharon Hassan and Caroline Roche, finishing with a sharing for friends, family and other players. The course will introduce the players to new traditional music to play and the challenges of larger ensemble playing. As part of the experience the participants will also have the opportunity to meet and watch the older musicians from the other courses as well as be able to attend some of the Aberdeen International Youth Festival shows. This is the starting step into the AIYF traditional music project and participants need to be keen, willing to participate fully and able to play some simple tunes on an instrument. Aberdeen International Youth Festival.
(AIYF) is one of the world’s biggest celebrations of youth arts. The festival consistently attracts some of the best young emerging talent from the worlds of traditional music, dance, theatre, orchestra, opera and world music.
SC&T was set up to promote the wonderful traditional culture of Scotland. It does this through promoting its various projects as well as those of their many partners. The mission is to bring a better awareness and appreciation of our traditional culture in a way that brings enjoyment and encouragement.
