In 1990 Jo Miller, then a community education worker, advertised fiddle classes in the Glasgow Art Centre off the Broomielaw. The classes were instantly thriving, and the Glasgow Fiddle Workshop (GFW) grew to be one of a major network of organisations teaching traditional music in Scotland. Since then, the GFW - now the Glasgow Folkmusic Workshop - has welcomed not just fiddlers, but mandolin players, whistlers, guitarists, ukuleles, banjos and bodhrans into their fold.

To celebrate their 25th anniversary, Nigel Gatherer has compiled a collection of new tunes by GFW tutors, current and past, and it is a fitting tribute to a remarkable group of people: the GFW.
