‘An unsung land is a dead land’ Bruce Chawin
Are you interested in the rich musical culture that has grown up along the River Tweed Catchment?
We are programming a series of six traditional music sessions along the Tweed and its tributaries between August 2013 and February 2014.
These will celebrate the music and song of the Tweed catchment in particular, and of the Borders region more generally, meaning ‘both sides the Tweed’.
The sessions are open to local musicians and members of the public and everyone is welcome to come along and share in the tradition by playing or listening.
