Just got back from Stornoway after a week long Residential with the BA (Hons) Applied Music degree. It was brilliant! – just shy of a hundred music students from all over Scotland & the Islands descended on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides for the end of year residential.
The residential involved 4 days of performances, music exams, sessions, jams, gigs and all round get togethers. For my part, this residential was the culmination of my BA(Hons) Applied Music degree. On Tues 25th April at 5pm I took to the stage at An Lanntair in Stornoway for my final year honours performance. It was an incredible experience where I performed a 40 minute set which I have been preparing and arranging since September last year.
It was fair nerve-racking but I am happy with the result, and delighted to have done this. It’s been an amzing journey bringing my music together for this, and I am Sooo looking forward to touring and playing more with this music!
I’ll leave it here for now with a wee taste of my adventure in Stornoway. Here is a Video Session I did at the ‘Wee Studio’ in Stornoway. This is an Irish tune performed for Fingerstyle guitar. The tune is called ‘Banish Misfortune’ it is in 6/8 timing with tuning DADGAD at capo 2. Enjoy 😉
