We have just received the letter below. Despite the short notice these concerts may be of interest to members.
My name is Paul Anderson and I’m a traditional Scottish Fiddle player from Aberdeenshire. At the moment I have the leading Swedish Nyckelharpa player with me doing series of concerts featuring traditional music from Scotland and Sweden called “Music of the North”. We’ll be performing at St Columba’s Gaelic Church on St Vincent Street in Glasgow tomorrow night [that is Wednesday 9 October] and at the Kirkcaldy Acoustic Music Club on Thursday night [10 October] It never occurred to me to get in touch earlier but do you think any of your members might be interested?
Peter whom you may well know or have heard of has been a key figure in taking the Nyckelharpa from near extinction to a point where there are over 10,000 players in Sweden now. He’s been a two time World Champion, performed at Swedish Royal weddings, performed with Benny Anderson’s folk group and is one of only 20 people to have been awarded the gold Rikkspeilman medal (folk music laureate).
Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you if you have any questions.
