Gordon Ferries Workshop

Gordon Ferries Workshop

The Concert and workshop was jointly organised by Inverurie music and NESCGS.

The following day, a workshop of Early Fretted Music took place in the same venue.  The workshop was divided into two sections with the first part being lessons and exercises about early tablatures and styles and a session on continuo playing on the guitar, improvising on ground basses etc. The afternoon session was an ensemble version of a piece Gordon had played the night before "Mille regreta" by Luis de Narvaez which delighted and encaptured us all. We were fortunate to have amongst us a wonderful voice "John Harle" which added another dimension to the magic of the afternoons efforts by Gordon and the ensemble players.

Thank you Gordon for such an enlightening experience.
