Claire Mann has previously been a popular special guest speaker and tutor for FluteFling. She has won several all-Ireland championships on flute and whistle, plays fiddle and also sings. Originally from Newcastle-on-Tyne and now resident in SW Scotland, she has been a fixture on the Scottish music scene for many years, has recorded and performed solo as well as in partnership with many others, from Old Blind Dogs to the Nuala Kennedy Band and in Tabache, a duo with fiddler Aiden O’Rourke. Present projects include performing with award-winning accompanist and singer Aaron Jones.
Visit Claire’s website for further information on her career and recordings.
“Mann’s fabulously fluent flute is the dominant melody instrument here (well, she is an all-Ireland champion) but she’s very potent on the fiddle too.”

FluteFling Traditional Flute & Whistle Workshops
We should have been having an Aberdeen "FluteFling" around this time, but obviously, circumstances have forced us "online".
I am not personally involved in this, but all the required information should be available from these links below.
Time zone is UK GMT.
FluteFling Online Traditional Flute & Whistle Workshops - 12 and 19 December 2020
The COVID situation makes the Aberdeen FluteFling we’d normally have at this time of year impossible. As an alternative we’ve arranged a virtual workshop mini series with Claire Mann as the tutor. Those of you who were at the 2018 FluteFling in Edinburgh in 2018 will know what a skilled, popular and entertaining tutor Claire is.
The workshops will cater for both flute and whistle. They will be delivered, via Zoom, from Claire’s house, near Newton Stewart in SW Scotland, and will take place over two consecutive weekends with a morning and afternoon part each day. There is an additional opportunity to be part of a group video performance, based on material featured in the workshops.
Claire will teach by ear but sheet music will be provided and a recording will be available in advance.
More details of the workshops and ticketing are available here:
