I meant to let you all know much earlier (but forgot) that you can now keep up to date with whats happening in our wee corner of Scotland by looking at our Newsletters, on our web. It's a quarterly newsletter issued to members and then put on pdf at a later stage.
A few interesting articles and music (all sytles)... I particularly like Nigel Gatherers piece on "what is Celtic Music", a question that's come up on the cafe a few times... so I asked him to tell us (if anyone has a clue... it's Nigel).
Also a wee series on mandolin history written by myself, (probably a lot of facts wrong!), with a bit of help from Paul Sparks and the kind permission of Alex Timmermann allowing me to use his embergher pics (the #Embergher Web is really an outstanding piece of work, don't you think? well done Alex!... that together with Ralf and Barrie's Embergher Book book really gives a full and comprehensive history)
Next issue will have an article on buying bowlbacks I hope you enjoy!
Best wishes to you all.
