Who We Are - What We Do - Where We Do It
GFW offers classes teaching a variety of musical instruments and song, mainly through the medium of traditional Scottish music.
Here's Finlay and Dan, two of our senior tutors explaining what GFW does (starting at 1min 12 secs) to Colin from the Riverside Show on STV.
We have an extensive group of professional and semi-professional tutors who are highly experienced performers and educators. Many are award winning musicians, recognised in the traditional genre.
Our Monday and Wednesday classes take place at
John Wheatley Building, Glasgow Kelvin College,
Throughout the year we also run Come-and-Try sessions and Workshops in various places, to encourage wider participation and support of Traditional Music.
We are a registered Scottish Charity SC029502
GFW is managed by a small BOARD consisting of GFW members and supported musically by four Senior Tutors.
GFW is operated by part-time Membership Administrator, Donald Higgins-Durnan, helped by committee members, where appropriate. GFW also benefits greatly from the help given by volunteers at our various events.
