Friends of Wighton event

From Sheena Wellington :

Wighton Heritage Centre, Central Library - Wednesday 2nd May
Lunchtime Recital - 1.15pm – 1.45pm.   Admission free
Karen Hannah, fiddle & Lindsay Duncan, guitar

Music lovers are being thoroughly spoiled at the Wighton over the next week.   Saturday’s  Cappuccino Concert featured those lovely singers The Quiggs    Now Wednesday’s Lunchtime Recital stars another great tuneful duo, Karen Hannah and Lindsay Duncan.

A fine fiddle  player with an engaging personality, Karen is known to many as  “tunemonster” for her unrivalled knowledge of Scottish melodies. The wonderfully named Nifty Shades of Grey, Sporran Again and Ceilidh Minogue are among the many bands she has worked with!  She has taught fiddle at the Wighton Centre for many years and her performing career has seen representing Scotland across Europe and as far afield as New Zealand and South Korea.

Another musical globetrotter is Lindsay Duncan, one of the best known musicians on the Dundee scene.    Deeply into music since his schooldays, he is a compelling singer and plays the most beautiful acoustic guitar – check out his version of The Irish Girl on YouTube.   His band pedigree incudes The Mad Parrot Ceilidh Band and The Broon Troot Orchestra and he is an excellent and experienced guitar teacher.

Karen and Lindsay have worked together as a duo and in various line- ups for around ten years.  They promise us tunes, songs and a surprise or two.  I’m looking forward to it and I hope you are too.

Admission free, donations welcome.
