PERTHSHIRE UKULELE GATHERING
Fri, Apr 21, 2017, 5:00 PM – Sun, Apr 23, 2017, 4:00 PM BST
Come and join us for a lovely weekend of playing and learning more about the Ukulele.
Starting from Friday evening we have taster sessions, workshops on Scottish Music, workshops on fingerpicking styles, Ukulele Orchestra sessions and much much more on how to sing and play!
The Weem Inn can be found nestled among the mountains and glens of highland Perthshire, in the shadow of Schiehallion. This is a beautiful and special place. Come and join us for a magical weekend of music making celebrating all things ukulele.
Coaching over the weekend will be provided by the fabulous Samantha Muir and the AMW team.
The course runs from tea time on Friday through to 4pm Sunday. Participants are welcome to arrive and check in from 2pm on the Friday and start exploring the area or the music. A buffet will be served from 5 to 6 pm when the playing starts – participants will be assigned their rehearsal rooms and can start when ready but formal coaching doesn’t start until Saturday Morning.
The tuition starts on Saturday at 10am and runs through until 4pm Sunday. There will be an extended “lunch period” to allow people to go for a stroll in the beautiful countryside (or to keep on playing).
The Weem Inn is situated in the tiny village of Weem just outside Aberfeldy. It was Established in 1527. It is a lovely old coaching inn, full of charm and character; log fires, however, this also brings certain challenges; there are no ground floor accomodation rooms and no lift or disabled access. Also, it means that there is an extremely limited supply of single occupancy rooms and that we will have to encourage people to share rooms wherever possible.
We are aware that in this modern age many people prefer their own private en suite room and we will try an accommodate this in the hotel where possible or through the alternative route of booking you in as a non-resident and helping you to get accommodation in one of the nearby B&B or hotels.
Extra nights are available so that you can linger and enjoy this beautiful area. Either the Sunday night or the Thursday night would be possible.
