GIG TICKET RESERVATIONS: If you would like to reserve tickets for the gig and/or workshop, please email tradsoc@st-andrews.ac.uk.  The gig is £8 or just £6 for students (if you can present an old T-shirt that smells of burnt toast as proof on entry). The workshop is very reasonably priced at £5! Workshops are open to players from multiple genres of acoustic music.

WORKSHOP PART 1: ADAM SUTHERLAND’S TUNESMITHERY CIRCLE
St. Andrews University Student Union, 1.30pm-2.30pm.
Designed for the tune players, Adam will explore harmonic ideas to help guide you to finding your own melodic style and rhythmic approach. Highly informative, inspiring, totally zen and extremely uplifting for the soul!

WORKSHOP PART 1 (Alternative): HAMISH NAPIER’S HARMONY AND ACCOMPANIMENT SUMMIT
St. Andrews University Student Union, 1.30pm-2.30pm.
Running simultaneously with Adam’s workshop, Hamish’s class is designed for the chordal accompaniment players and rhythm players. This will not be dull. Within the space of 1 hour Hamish will teach you about chords, modes and groove through a method that is, quite frankly, astoundingly clear. EUREKA!

WORKSHOP PART 2: ADAM & HAMISH’S BAND GATHERING
St. Andrews University Student Union, 3pm-4pm
Everyone that attended the 1.30pm workshops will come together in one giant class to make music that will defy the boundaries of folk, Western classical, and the outer reaches of jazz as we know it. Expect tears of joy.

GIG: NAE PLANS LIVE
Boys Brigade Hall, doors 7pm, starts 7.30pm.
Hamish and Adam take to the stage for a completely unplanned, unarranged and terrifyingly unhinged setlist – a rollercoaster of a ride!

NAE PLANS – Running to Mull

‘Running to Mull’ – an epic story that begins with a difficult phone call and puddle of orange juice, and fast becomes one of the most gripping journeys of Adam Sutherland’s life. Belief, determination, bravery and hilarious characters – this film is a sermon for those who regularly claim they are running late!

NAE PLANS Shortest Street in The World

Thank you to The Mackays Hotel, Wick for letting us film on their doorstep at No.1 Ebenezer Place – the ‘World’s Shortest Street’ according to the Guinness Book of Records! Couldn’t resist The Shamen reference (as children of 90s dance music!). The tune is Allan MacDonald‘s stunning ‘Cille Pheadair’ waltz which has surely got to be a worthy candidate for Scotland’s shortest tune.

Film and audio by Somhairle Macdonald and Spad Reid.
