Harp workshop with Becky Hill

Learn harp with Becky Hill

Learn harp with Scottish Royal Conservatoire student, multi-instrumentalist and composer Becky Hill on Saturday 8th July at Newton Stewart Centre. Workshops are free for under 25's or just £10.00 if you're over 25.

Becky will be performing at the finale concert at the McMillan Hall on Saturday 8th July with BBC Radio Scotland's Young Traditional Musician of the Year 2017, Charlie Stewart, so whilst these two wonderful musicians are in Galloway we thought we'd ask if they would be good enough to facilitate a couple of workshops for us and we're delighted that they both agreed.

This is a fantastic opportunity to be taught by one of Scotland's finest young harp players and a very talented musician.

Tickets and venue information are available online, simply click the button below, or call the box office on 07762 064 298.
