The festival is entirely self-funded and the price reflects the tutor fees, travel and venue costs.  I have tried to keep the costs down as much as possible in order to provide you with value for money.


It might be possible for you to get funding to attend the festival. There are various organisations offering professional development funding including Creative Scotland, PRS Foundation, Help Musicians UK, Scottish Music Centre as well as some local councils.

If you are planning to apply for funding please get in touch and I may be able to help! 

I'm delighted to be able to offer 2 bursaries this year, worth £100 each  (making the weekend £115), for those who may find fees a prohibitive barrier to attending the weekend. Please contact me to if you'd like to be considered for this.
