Abstract

Week of events was organised between 29th July and 5th August 2014 in Asturias by Bradley as artistic director of ACE. Three UHI music students from the BA Applied Music programme secured Student Development Funding to attend a week of international collaboration with local professional musicians, professional performance, cultural events and teaching and learning opportunities. They joined Simon Bradley and Anna-Wendy Stevenson, both lecturers with LCC/UHI and guest LCC lecturer Paul McCallum and award winning Gaelic tenor for this great educational opportunity.

30th July: Gijon is the biggest city in Asturias and the ACE project performed there as part of the Festival Arcu Atlanticu 2014 (Atlantic Arc Festival)
31st July: ACE performed the next day in the summer festivities of major tourist destination Llanes, also in Asturias. This event is hosted by the local Traditional Music School.
1st and 2nd August: The next two days will see participation in a typical Celtic Fiesta in fishing village Candas, visits to a piping museum and tour of an Asturian folk village.
3rd and 4th August: ACE school in Candas. Local Asturian musicians invited to workshops led by the LCC/UHI staff illustrating Scottish traditional music culture. Traditional tunes and technique taught along with opportunities to learn Gaelic phrases and songs. The UHI students received tuition from top professional Asturian musicians involved in the ACE project during the ACE school. The three UHI students produced a blog detailing the experience.
