Niel Gow Festival 2018 Workshops

We have a range of workshops taking place in the upstairs rooms at  Birnam Arts over the course of the festival, led by the various performers, they are a perfect opportunity to brush up your skills under the tutelage of hugely talented artists....

The workshops are aimed at novice and intermediate players, not absolute beginners (although a lot can be learned by observing a tutor at work!)  You will need to have your instrument with you, and the focus will be on technique and sound as opposed to just learning new tunes.


Places on the workshops can be booked either in person at Birnam Arts or by calling 01350 727 674 during the week between 9am - 5pm. There is a maximum of 15 people per workshop.



Workshops are £10 for adults & £5 for Under 18s
