Day 276 - Patsy Reid: Bridge of Garry
Perth-based fiddler, arranger, producer and tutor Patsy Reid is a truly world-class talent that we're blessed to have in our midst. As such, we're delighted to announce that Patsy will be taking over as Musical Director for our youth music ensemble, The Gordon Duncan Experience in the New Year.
For those of you still searching for musical Christmas presents, Patsy has an incredible pre-Christmas sale on her website where you can choose 5 CD's from her brilliant and eclectic back catalogue for only £20! This version of Bridge Of Garry (which is featured on her CD, The Brightest Path) is from our Made In Perthshire concert from Jan 2016, which Patsy and Ross Ainslie directed.
