Mixter Maxter Nigel Gatherer's Old Time Workshops:
Old Time in Fife 1
(2011)

The first Old Time in Fife 2011 was held at The Steeple in Newburgh, North Fife in May 2011, and was a great success. The day was made up of three events: an old-time workshop during the day, an old-time session in the early evening, and a more general session in the pub later on. We had eleven participants in the workshop, and the feedback was good. About twenty five came to the old-time session in The Steeple, and again, the feedback was very good. About the same number took part in the pub session, where we had everything from old-time, bluegrass, Shetland, Scottish, Irish and blues. The manager laid on sandwiches and the atmosphere was happy and high. We knew it was a success when everyone asked "When's the next one?"
