Give a little whistle at traditional music workshops

"YOUNGSTERS were hitting all the right notes at musical workshops held to celebrate an international sporting competition in Inverness.

More than 20 children from primary five to seven, attended the free sessions at Inverness Ice Rink on Saturday before Scotland and Ireland faced off in the shinty and hurling match at Bught Park.

The children were given the chance to learn traditional songs on the accordion and tin whistle and play a game of shinty.

The events were organised by Feis Ros in partnership with the Camanachd Association. David Nisbet, a science teacher at Kingussie High School, took the accordion workshops."
