Alex Green Tin Whistle Festival

Part of Scottish Culture and Traditions
Begins 12 midnight

In collaboration with our partners, Friends of the Elphinstone Institute, Aberdeen Performing Arts, TMSA Aberdeen, WayWord Festival, Fèis Rois, and SC&T Youth, the Elphinstone Institute is excited to announce the Alex Green Tin Whistle Festival, 1-3 March 2024 in Aberdeen. The festival (part of the Alex Green Tin Whistle Project) celebrates the important musical legacy of much-loved North-East tin whistle virtuoso, Alex Green (1930-2017). It promises to be an inspiring weekend of multi-instrumental traditional music, and will bring together some of the most highly regarded tin whistle players from Scotland and beyond. The first festival of its kind to be held in the North-East, its focus acknowledges the important place of the tin whistle within the North-East community, and the dedicated efforts of Alex Green to inspire young players, and to bring its uniquely expressive potential as an instrument to the foreground of Scottish traditional music. Performers who are appearing include Mary Bergin, Cathal McConnell, Tom Oakes, Claire Mann and Fred Morrison.
