Inspire groups have been performing at several events recently. Many group members were performing for the first time, which is a very scary thing to do as anyone who has played, sung or spoken in public will know, and you can all be hugely proud of yourselves!
The Cyrenians group kicked off an evening at Leith Folk Club recently with three songs, two of which they’d written themselves! They were fantastic, and very well received.
Then all four groups performed songs at our Tradfest event at the Scottish Storytelling Centre – an event for all ages, as you can see from the photo below which features Scott Murray and his new pal guesting with the Alma group.
We’re so pleased that people have taken up the challenge of performing, and very inspired by what they’ve achieved. This project isn’t a one-way street – myself and the tutors are equally encouraged, touched and impressed by the people who share our music in Inspire.
