Next Edinburgh Youth Gaitherin 3-6th April 2017. Book here!
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 Youth Gaitherin takes place during the Easter holidays in Edinburgh. Around 100 young people (P5 – S6) take part in four 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 accordion to song writing and internet radio production.
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 playing together, grow in confidence and often end up going on to other similar events and forming bands.
