Description

Come and join SC&T to celebrate both our 20th birthday and the launch of our new Tunebook. The Aberdeen Collection: 250 Contemporary Scottish Tunes in Traditional Style is a collection of tunes written by tunesmiths who live in, or have a connection with, Aberdeen. Be the first to hear and dance to some of these great tunes at the Saturday night book-launch ceilidh and get the book hot off the press. The perfect present for every musician you know!

This is a free event open to young people and adults which is part of the Silver City Stories event and SC&T's Silver City Stramash. The evening will start with a short presentation on the book (with stovies) and will continue with a ceilidh featuring as the house band Aberdeen's own Nathan Bissette (guitar, banjo and mandolin), Helen Lynch (caller, whistle and Alastair Duthie (fiddle). They will be joined by a variety of guests and tunesmiths throughout the evening.

The schedule for the evening is as follows

6-7 pm Presentation of book

7 – 8 pm Stovies

8 – 11.30 Ceilidh with stovies break

The book is published by Aberdeen University Press and received funding from Vibrant Aberdeen and Stonehaven Folk Festival public arts project. It has a Foreword by Alasdair Fraser and includes tunes from SC&T particpants and tutors past and present as well as a few other weel-kent musician-composers with Aberdeen connections, such as Carol Anderson, Jarlath Henderson, Sara Reith, Ronan Martin, Gavin Marwick and Aidan O’Rourk.

Tunes have been collected and edited by Helen Lynch and Carley Williams, and painstakingly transcribed by Nathan Bissette. Thanks for artwork to Jenny Maclean and Pete Coutts, and to all the 97 contributors!!
