Listen to young Scots fiddler, Arthur Coates to experience a blast of sound, energy and rhythm from the comfort of your own home. Enjoy the tunes and join in with some toe-tapping of your own in this gentle seated workshop.
Steeped in the folk music of the Shetland Islands from a young age, Arthur was brought up in a house where traditional music was on the menu everyday!
He showed interest from an early age and at 7 took his first fiddle lesson. Upon starting secondary school Arthur was offered a place at the prestigious ‘Aberdeen City Music School’ where he studied fiddle and piano. It was during his time at ‘ACMS’, through bands like ‘La Bottine Souriante’, ‘Le Vent du Nord’, ‘De Temps Antan’ that he would realise his calling for Quebecois traditional music.
