Scottish Autoharp Weekend, 8-10 Aug. 2014

Thanks to Sharon Loughrin of the Red Room in Cookstown, Co. Tyrone, for forwarding news of the Scottish Autoharp Weekend, supplied by the organiser, Nadine Stah White of UK Autoharps.

The Weekend - including workshops, sessions, an evening concert on Saturday, and a gospel service on Sunday - will be held in the village of Moniaive, Dumfriesshire, Scotland (site of the annual Moniaive Michaelmas Bluegrass Festival), on 8-10 August. This year, more performers and workshop leaders than ever before are announced, including Maeve Toner, who will be giving a Saturday morning workshop on 'What IS old-time music and why does it work so well on the autoharp?' and playing on the main concert.

Copies of the Weekend's flyer, bio details of all artists taking part, and lists of autoharp resources are also available from UK Autoharps, and Sharon will be bringing some copies to the Athy Bluegrass Festival next month. More information on the Weekend, including downloadable programme, booking form, and accommodation details, is on the UK Autoharps website.
