Description

Welcome to our 7th Annual Traditional Summer Music Camp, returning for the 2nd time to Abbotsford, the home of Sir Walter Scott. The Summer school runs from Monday evening 13th August to Friday 17th August inclusive and classes will be taught in the beautiful home and grounds of Abbotsford House, the Historic House where Walter Scott wrote many of his novels. The location is easily accessible by rail to Tweedbank and we are delighted to also offer accommodation both in the House's Hope Scott Wing and at the nearby Heriot Watt University Campus. We also have limited spaces for Motorhomes, if you wish to use a space please get in touch directly.

The summer School is led by our Music Director Iain Fraser who will be offering classes in fiddle and along with Ian Lowthian, teaching mixed instrument groups. Singers Kathy Stewart and Ed Miller will be offering classes in Border Ballads, Traditional Scots Song and Vocal Harmonies. Andy Gray will be teaching Guitar and Ian Lowthian will also be offering Accordion Classes.

Come along and join us for this magical musical journey & meet some wonderful folk along the way. You can read more details about the summer school by clicking on our website page.
