Scottish Culture and Traditions - SC&T

Comments

Well - it’s been QUITE A YEAR .

We all know that bad stuff has happened ….. there’s no need for us to dwell on it.

As we head towards the end of this strange year, maybe we should take a moment to think about the good things this year has brought us. In this unprecedented time, people came together, they volunteered to help others, they smiled behind their masks and they kept on believing.

Already, 2021 is starting to look better and filled with more hope because …
- A vaccine has been found 👏
- We proved we can be together, even when apart (thanks to Zoom!)
- We’ve learned the power of community and we’ll take this into 2021

Or perhaps .. especially important for us ... how laughter and MUSIC prevailed and kept us all going through some dark days.

From all on the SC&T Board, we wish you a very Merry Christmas and best wishes for 2021. Here’s to a safe return to playing music again together.

A music video from our French friends Les Etournias which documents their visit last year to Aberdeen, and in particular to Dunnottar Castle. It features all their musicians and a poem by Gerard Dezemerie, and has been put together over the last couple of weeks despite the stricter Coronavirus isolation rules that we have here in the UK. Brilliant!!

A lovely video from our French friends, Les Etournias, documenting their trip to Aberdeen last year. The tune is "Le Branle du Parlement", which was part of their repertoire when they were here.
