Harp Course with Alison Kinnaird at Blackhills Estate, Monday 23rd July - Friday 27th July 2018 February 13 2018

Alison Kinnaird

Alison Kinnaird will again be teaching this very popular course, which takes place on the beautiful Blackhills Estate near Elgin in Morayshire, Scotland. Early booking is recommended as the course is limited to fifteen participants.

The atmosphere is always relaxed and friendly and the five day course provides an opportunity to learn in depth. The teaching is all aural - no need to read music - but is aimed at those with some experience of playing the harp, and is therefore not suitable for total beginners.

The £250 course fee includes all tuition and meals, and the early finish time each day allows opportunities to socialise, relax, play music together and explore the estate gardens. Limited accommodation and harp hire is available on a first-come first-served basis.

Alison Kinnaird has been at the forefront of the revival, and continuing success, of the Scottish harp. She plays both gut-strung Scottish harp and wire-strung clarsach, and is recognised as an authority on both the instrument and its history.

Location: Blackhills Estate, By Elgin, Moray, Scotland IV30 8QU
Dates: Mon 23rd July - Fri 27th July 2018
