International Guitar Night

My lifelong friend and professional predecessor at Musselburgh Grammar School, Mike McGeary, dropped by there last week to see me – with an offer for East Lothian guitar pupils. In his capacity as City of Edinburgh Council’s Principal Officer for Instrumental Instruction, Mike is involved with the outreach side of the current International Guitar Night tour. In addition to the gig at our own Brunton Hall, the members of this outfit are putting on a concert/workshop for pupils in Portobello High School on Friday Oct 2 from 2:00 – 4:00. Entry price to pupils is a mere £5.

There is ample video footage on the tour diary site but, to give you a more immediate idea of the three players involved, have a look at the videos below.
