"It has been my privilege, first as a member, then a secretary, and today as chair, to take part in the development of Lochgoilhead Fiddle Workshop, now based in Strachur. 2012 saw our 10th Anniversary, and we determined then to celebrate it by publishing this collection. This book therefore marks fifteen years of learning and playing the fiddle by ear, in the traditional way. It is vital to traditional Scottish music that this method of learning tunes should thrive, as a means by which the liveliness and organic inventiveness, not to mention the fun, of the music and playing are communicated and developed, particularly in small communties. One aim of this book is to relect the wealth of traditional music composed and played in Argyll. Many of the tunes refer to local people and places and the pieces have all been chosen by members of our workshop." Evie Campbell, Chair of LFW@Strachur.
