Mixter Maxter 5 (February 2015)

I had been wanting to do a workshop in East Lothian for a while, because I know there is a keen group of musicians meeting and playing there. I finally made it, and it was worth it, as many of them came, as well as more from Edinburgh and some from even further afield.

Mixter Maxter 5

The theme for the workshop was "The Covenanters", because the National Covenant was signed on the 28th February 1638. It was good to have a lot of newcomers from East Lothian, and they made us very welcome.

Mixter Maxter 9 will be in the Autumn of 2016 at a venue to be confirmed. Want it to be near you? All that is required is a good hall and someone local for liaison. If you would like Mixter Maxter to come to your area, get in touch, and we can talk about it.
