FluteFling Autumn Workshops 2017

Some quick FluteFling news to let you know of some trad flute workshop dates coming up between September and Christmas, including a minifest in Aberdeen in November.

The Aberdeen minifest is an exciting chance to take the flutes on the road and is a smaller version of the main annual weekend in Edinburgh. It will be great to catch up with the many flute players who visit Edinburgh and play some tunes with them on their home turf for a change.

The regular monthly workshops in Edinburgh will continue, but September and October see some changes due to diary clashes.

  • Saturday 23 Sep 1-4pm at Tribe Porty in Portobello (4th Saturday of month)
  • October: no workshop
  • Friday-Sunday  02-05 Nov FluteFling goes to Aberdeen: Sessions Fri, Sat, Sun; all-day Saturday workshops with Sharon Creasey and Gordon Turnbull with special guest speaker and concert. Details, including tickets, to be announced very soon.
  • Saturday 18 Nov 1-4pm at Tribe Porty in Portobello (3rd Saturday of month)
  • Saturday 16 Dec 1-4pm at Tribe Porty in Portobello (3rd Saturday of month)

Tickets for these will go on sale very soon with limited places. Signing up to the newsletter ensures you get to hear about it first. I hope you can make it and look forward to seeing you on one of the dates.

  1. Hi Gordon! Hope this finds you well!
    I was just looking at the flutefling site, missing you all and Edinburgh.
    So cool to see the weekend in Aberdeen being planned. Wish I could pop over.
    Hey, I just noticed the photo description there from a June fling session, on the page – but the photo doesn’t appear in its space – man, I’d love to see that photo!
    Always great to see info on the super work and music you are doing.
    Best wishes from The Land o’ Lakes, Minnesota,

  2. Hi Laura, Great to hear from you. Sorry you can’t make Aberdeen, but we’re just keeping your seat warm for you and looking forward to you returning. And to give you a flavour, I’ve updated the post to fix the broken link. Thanks for alerting me to the missing photo!
