A feast of music at Youth Trad Festival
World champion and award-winning tutors headed the line-up for this year’s Youth Trad Festival, Feis an lar Dheas, at Lincluden Primary school on Saturday.
The third annual festival of music and culture provided a series of activities and workshops, organised by Angela Pearcey and Wendy Stewart, starting at 9.15am and ended at 5pm.
Youngsters, aged six to 16, got to choose from Scots or Gaelic song, beginners tin whistle, beginners ukulele, playing in band, guitar, small pipes, chanter, or drama workshops.
The instruments were provided for the beginners groups.
During the day the youngsters also enjoyed games, balloon shaping, Gaelic bingo and ceilidh dancing.
The event paves the way for Feis The Music at Dumfries Theatre Royal on November 4 from 2.30pm to 4.30pm, which will be a celebration of Gaelic and scots song and melody in the south west.
There will be plenty of young performers from across the region including some of the youngsters who attended Saturday’s Youth Trad Festival.
Feis The Music will also feature Spectrum from Annan and those who took part in Feis workshops on guitar, whistle, harp, Gaelic and Scots song, which have been held throughout the region over the year.
Tickets, priced £10 and £6 under 12’s, are now available from the Theatre Royal.
