Description

Enjoy a concert of Scottish traditional music played by the next generation of talented young musicians with 10-time National Scottish Fiddling Champion JOHN TURNER. These young fiddle players have all studied with master fiddler John Turner at the Jink and Diddle School of Scottish Fiddling. The school has sessions every winter and summer at the Valle Crucis Conference Center in Valle Crucis, North Carolina.

John Turner and his students are great exponents of Scottish fiddle music. A number of the students have won top prizes in prestigious competitions. Everyone should come and hear Scotland's lovely airs, military marches, bouncy jigs, snappy strathspeys, up-tempo reels and other styles. This is a musical event not to be missed!

Admission to the concert is free. Love offerings will be gratefully accepted to benefit the Jink and Diddle scholarship fund.
