Tolbooth Trad

Monday Nights from 7 November

Tolbooth Trad was created in 2006 by musician Lori Watson alongside Claire Mann, Ewan Macpherson and Innes Watson.

16 years on we are delighted that, after a two year break, we are coming back together on 7th November.

The workshops are on a Monday evening and are open to children and young people aged 9 – 18 attending Stirling Council schools. The workshops are free thanks to Youth Music Initiative funding. Here is a short film about the workshops:

Tolbooth Trad is led by Daniel Thorpe (Fiddle and Whistle) and Katie Allan (Fiddle and Guitar), who joined Tolbooth Trad in 2006 when at school.

  • 5.30pm – 6.15pm – complete beginners (whistle, fiddle, guitar – we can loan instruments if you do not have your own)
  • 6.30pm – 7.15pm – Improvers (whistle, fiddle, guitar) – so a child who has been learning an instrument for 2 – 3 years approximately.
  • 7.20pm – 8.20pm – Intermediate / Advanced (any trad instrument
