Widening The Welcome - Syrian New Scots

Glenbuchat Eclectic Events is arranging for the Syrian New Scots to have a day out on Sunday, the 17th June, as part of the celebration of the Festival of Eid at the end of Ramadan. Coaches will take them to Braemar, where the Braemar Community Ltd. will be treating them to a tour of the Castle, historic walks and some pipe music. Afterwards, the whole group will come to the Lonach Hall in Strathdon for food, entertainment and friendship

Local residents of Strathdon, Braemar, Rhynie and further afield are getting together, not only to guarantee a successful day out but also to make it possible to forge new friendships during this event, which we hope will result in volunteers for further ‘blethering'!

Glenbuchat Eclectic Events acknowledges with gratitude grants that have been received from Marr Area Partnership and Foundation Scotland Comic Relief Community Cash Fund, which have contributed to making this possible. However, we still need further funds and we have set up a page where you can easily make a donation.

Let's make it happen!!

We will need volunteers to help on Sunday, the 17th of June. For example: setting up the Hall, catering and entertainments. If you would like to help in any way, please do get in touch with Alan Carr,

Treppenwitz is a project dedicated to improvisation and the exploration of sounds within open structures. The vision of the band is of a collective, organic approach to improvised performance, where each member is a leader, and can shape the direction of the music as such. 

Compositions are all contributed by the members, and are used as a springboard for exploration of sounds, textures, harmony and rhythm. This performance is part of their Feb/March 2018 UK tour to promote their new record, Short+Long Ditties, which was released on New Jazz Records.

"Intense and fearless...the strong musical relationship between these three leading young jazz musicians allows them to delve deep into improvisation, with beautiful original melodies and fascinating rhythmic structures..." Ilkley Jazz Festival

“In something of a crowded market, the young piano trio Treppenwitz is making a fresh new case for the medium, with an ensemble sound and historical awareness that both builds upon and ignores what has come before. Their performance at mjf 2017 captivated the audience with its reflective miniatures and extended investigations into sound, not afraid of lyrical melodies - nor of avoiding them. It’s a band that will surely blossom over the coming years.” – Steve Mead, Manchester Jazz Festival
