Plockton Music School Summer Tour at Edinburgh FC / EFC
Edinburgh FC is delighted to welcome the students of Sgoil Chiùil Na Gàidhealtachd (The National Centre of Excellence at Plockton) for their debut appearance at the Club. The gig is part of their annual tour, which is designed to give the students an opportunity to get out and share their music, not only with the audiences, but also with the many young musicians they meet at workshops or who provide support at gigs.
The concert will feature the 16 students in various combinations, including them playing all together in a powerful finale.
The Centre is a residential project based at Plockton High School and students follow a normal comprehensive educational curriculum in addition to their specialist music studies.
The internationally acclaimed National Centre of Excellence teaches accordion, clàrsach, fiddle, pipes, piano, guitar, drums, whistle, flute, and Scots and Gaelic song, and most of these will feature in the programme. All of the youngsters are multi-talented and they play a wide variety of vocal and instrumental music, both traditional and contemporary. There really is something for everybody in the show.
The tour is made possible by the Friends of Plockton Music School, a charitable trust which provides financial support for the touring and recording activities of the Centre. For more information on the Friends of Plockton Music School, visit www.fpms.org.uk
