The Edinburgh Youth Gaitherin’ was set up in 1995 by a group of parents who wanted to provide an opportunity for young people from across the city to come together and learn skills in traditional Scottish music.
The Easter Gaitherin’ takes place during the Easter holidays in Edinburgh. Around 60 young people (P5 – S6) take part in three days of workshops led by some of the country’s finest traditional musicians. The event is supported by a team of volunteers and workshops range from fiddle and whistle to song and drama.
The Youth Gaitherin’ is all about creativity and having fun. It gives young people the opportunity to socialise and become part of a wider music community. They learn about traditional music and playing together, and often end up going on to other similar events and forming bands.
