Charlie McKerron Music Week in association with the Insider Music festival.


17th -21st June 2013, Inshriach House.


Learn from the best then party with the rest.

In an unusual collaboration of education and entertainment, Scots fiddle supremo Charlie McKerron has teamed up with the organisers of the Insider festival to put together what may be the finest music school of the summer.

The inaugural Charlie McKerron music school schoolwill take place on the Inshriach Estate between 17th and 21st June.

On the strength of the tutor line up alone, Charlie’smusic school seems to have it covered, with Lauren MacColl, Dezi Donnelly, fellow Session A9ers Adam Sutherland and Gordon Gunn, plus Duncan Chisholm and the ever outstanding Ross Ainslie and Tim Edey, and for international flavour, India Alba’s fiddle guru Sharat Srivastava – the tutors line up is as powerful as you could ever wish.

Then you factor in that it runs in the week up to the Insider festival, one of the under the radar gems of the summer festival calendar, renowned for the quality of its tunes, its fine food and its amazing mountainous backdrop on the Inshriach estate, and that it will share all its infrastructure with the festival.

Monday to Friday teaching, complete with food and camping, is £350, with discounts for locals staying at home. We will also be offering one day courses with each tutor for £75 per day.
