Teaching at Tinto 16 is Wick fiddler Gordon Gunn. Gordon’s an amazing fiddler with a different style to most other Scottish fiddlers I think. He has a very fluid style combined with fantastic technique. When his debut recording from the Gordon Gunn Band – “Shoreside” (Greentrax Recordings CDTRAX 204 (2000)). I remember Ian Green of Greentrax telling everyone how Gordon was his favourite fiddler. When I wrote my Scottish Fiddle Concerto in 2007 Gordon was my first thought to take the lead. He was great on the piece as well amazing everyone in the band with his solos!
Gordon is a well known as a fiddler – solo and with Session A9 and tours regularly throughout the world so it’s a real opportunity to have him teach at Tinto Summer School. You can book now onto the course July 15th – 20th, Wiston Lodge, South Lanarkshire.
