COME & TRY WIRE STRUNG CLARSACH

Sunday 4.30pm -6pm
TUTOR: Bill T
aylor

Max 8 participants

An opportunity to try out the beautifully resonant wirestrung Highland clarsach. While these were properly played with fingernails at least 2 mm long, that’s not necessary for this taster class. The technique we use is often called playing “in the stopped style”, where the finger pads damp certain strings to stop excessive ringing and allow us to hear a clear line for the melody, the decoration, or both. Play a few simple tunes, touch on its history and feel free to ask questions. A limited number of wire-strung clarsachs are available.

Please notify the office if you require assistance with access.
