Fiddlinscool with Gregor Borland

Fiddle Camp 12/13th May 2018
at Hatton Castle, Newtyle.
Another tremendous opportunity to hone your fiddling skills under the nurturing tutelage of, 8 time Scottish fiddle champion, Gregor Borland. Gregor was taught by Donald Riddell, and Hector MacAndrew, and draws on that strong tradition to inform his teaching.
At Gregor’s ‘Fiddlingscool’ fiddle camps, you get more than just a tune… More than just the notes……it’s about the bowing, bow management, ornamentation and the essence of the tune. These are all tools that will enhance your ‘feel’, understanding and playing of any tune!..All levels and experience of players are encouraged to join us. The evenings will be a chance to have a social session with other ‘campers’.
Enjoy two full days, (Saturday and Sunday) of fiddle tuition. £60/day tuition, inclusive of light lunch.
Friday/Saturday Accommodation, if required (£10-15/per person/per night dependent on single twin etc) and other meals available at extra very modest cost. (We usually just divvy up the food expenses, at the end of the camp, so probably around £10-15 per person)
Reviews:
"Gregor has the rare quality of being a first rank fiddler, and, a first class natural teacher."
"I came away totally inspired; just, feeling empowered to keep improving my playing"
"…and we made some good friends to boot, what fun!!"
“…it’s quality not quantity that counts. Gregor’s classes are quality from start to finish”
