The Bagpipe Society's "Blowout" 2017 - our 25th! (2nd to 4th June) | Scott Marshall Hurdy-gurdy Workshop

Blowout 2017 - our 25th!
"Our Annual Festival of Bagpipes"
Polesworth Abbey, near Tamworth, Staffs, UK
2nd to 4th June

On Saturday, Scott Marshall will share some of the things he has been discovering through playing: instrument set up, rosin & cotton, ideas for practice and improvisation, improving technique and making practice fun, playing to records. Also trompette tricks and patterns, adding the buzzes between the buzzes, scales and exotic scales, visualising the keybox and intervals. Amplification & using effects pedals.
Please let us know the tuning (G/C or D/G) of your hurdy gurdy when you order tickets

Scott has been playing the hurdy-gurdy for twelve years. He plays at sessions and for dances and occasional duets and has taught the instrument both in the UK and abroad with Cliff Stapleton. He is currently experimenting with vintage electronica and echo units to create textured improvised sound tracks. Scott writes quirky, catchy tunes and has recently finished recording his first solo hurdy-gurdy album.
