Fiddle and Guitar Workshops with Maggie Adamson and Brian Nicolson

30/05/2014 @ 3:45 pm - 6:00 pm

Maggie Adamson is one of Shetland’s finest young fiddlers who exemplifies the dynamic techniques which has made the Shetland fiddle style famous. A few years back, when Scotland’s performance on the rugby field was slightly more auspicious, Irish Music Magazine described Maggie as having more attack than the entire Scotland three-quarter line. Since then Maggie has gone on to greater things, including playing to sell-out audiences on the accordion and fiddle club circuit, being a perennial star of Celtic Connections, gobsmacking a packed Queen’s Hall in Edinburgh, and all this while still a
student at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
Maggie is accompanied by her regular partner, Brian Nicolson who is also renowned as a member of Hom Bru and quite a few other well-known trad music groups. Brian is widely considered to be Shetland’s most gifted and prodigious guitarist.
Maggie and Brian will be giving a lunchtime concert for At One With Music in Inverness Town House at 1.00pm on Friday 30th May. Doors open at 12.30pm. Admission costs £5 for adults and £1 for children.
