A huge thank you to everyone who registered for our first half-term and came along to make last night a very special evening as we launched the North East Fiddle School. We were a little nervous beforehand, but the enthusiasm from all 23 (yes, twenty three!) participants, and the fact that everyone found the venue and seemed quite excited, helped us through the evening. From Grace’s lovely rendition of Snowy Monday, to Stewart’s ranting (the dance step, I mean – he wasn’t in a bad mood!) it will be an evening that stays long in my memory!

Many thanks to all at Westfield School who have helped us with the venue, and to all our friends and colleagues who have been so supportive. We are already looking forward to continuing the great work on fiddle technique and style next week.
