Friends of Wighton : Lunchtime Recital - Tuesday 26th July

** UPDATE !   Please note that the start time for this event below has been altered to 2pm **
The Friends of Wighton lunchtime recital tomorrow features the excellent Fèis Rois Ceildh Trail - it takes place at 1.15pm tomorrow (Tuesday 26th) in the Wighton Heritage Centre, Central Library and admission is free.

The 2016 Ceilidh Trail takes place from 11th July to 13th August.     The project provides summer employment for 15 outstanding young musicians.     They perform at almost 100 gigs during this busy summer period in July and August so its great to see Dundee as part of the trail.

Fèis Rois launched its acclaimed Ceilidh Trail project in 2000.   The Ceilidh Trail is a paid summer job and a professional development opportunity for young people aged 16 – 25 who are considering a performance career in traditional Scottish music. It is also a cultural tourism project bringing high quality traditional music performances to communities across Scotland throughout the peak tourist period in July and August.
