Orkney Accordion Workshop with Colin Nicholson

Orkney Folk Festival Spotlight

Scotland Unwrapped

Synonymous with traditional Orcadian music, the accordion has experienced a resurgence in popularity over the last few decades – thanks in no small part to the work of the Orkney Traditional Music Project. One of its first students, Colin Nicholson – now one of Orkney’s finest accordion players, and a graduate of Newcastle University’s folk degree – hails from Stromness, the home of the Orkney Folk Festival. Workshop participants can expect to learn some tunes and techniques from the northern isles.

This event will last approximately 1 hour, without an interval.
