26 October 2017Celtic Connections, January 2018
Come and join me for workshops at the 25th Anniversary of Scotland's Winter festival in Glasgow, Celtic Connections.
Saturday 20th January
10.30am - 12 noon “Singin’ on yer Mammy’s Knee”
Traditional Scottish songs to sing with your wee ones. This workshop features familiar favourites and some not-so-familiar songs, including dandling songs, action songs and one or two singing games, with a lullaby wind-down. These songs can boost your child’s social, language and motor skills and are a great chance for lots of participation, bouncing and cuddles. There will be a couple of very simple Gaelic songs thrown in. You don’t need any previous experience and adults will be given song sheets to take home with them.
1:30 pm to 3 pm “Playsongs for Bigger Bairns”
For children aged 8-11 and the adults who care for them. Pick up some traditional Scottish songs naturally through playing. This workshop is a chance to get up on your feet with some listening and rhythm games, as well as singing games from the playground, mostly in Scots with a couple of very simple Gaelic songs. You don’t need any previous experience and there will be song sheets available to take home.
