Music from the Antipodes

Message 42183 · ynysw · 19 Sep 2005 00:49:58 · Top

Hi all Kiwis! Last evening I attended a concert put on here in Auckland NZ by the Melbourne Scottish Fiddle Club and was inspired by their talent and understanding of Scottish Fiddle Music to write to Strathspey in hopes of urging other Kiwis to attend their concerts in various parts of our country.
This group is a Club ranging from about 10 yrs old to 70ish. There was a huge amount of talent in the group but the inspiring part was the number and versatility of young members. They are on a two week tour of NZ and have Chris Duncan to aid them in the first week before he goes to Australian Winter School next week.
If you are able to get to one of their concerts I can guarantee your pleasure and excitement to see how well Scottish Fiddle music is doing way down in our part of the world!
