Nigel Gatherer

tunebook 144 tunes.

I’m Nigel Gatherer of Perthshire, Scotland. I teach traditional music in various projects around Scotland, including Glasgow Fiddle Workshop, The Scots Music Group in Edinburgh, and the Lanarkshire Guitar and Mandolin Association. My main interests are Scottish music, Old-Time music, and traditional and folk music in general. I play gigs as part of a mandolin/guitar duet and in a local ceilidh band.

I transcribe a lot of tunes in the course of my work - there are hundreds of them at my website, http://www.nigelgatherer.com. Almost all of the transcriptions these days are from recordings of players. Some of my transcriptions on this site:
