Jed children’s folk project seeks leader

THE search is on for a musician to help develop a primary school programme in Jedburgh.

Jethart Folk is a traditional and world music after-school club based at Jedburgh Community and Arts Centre.

The successful candidate will help Scottish Borders Council’s traditional song and world music development officers Kaela Rowan and Shona Mooney and work to develop the club members’ skills.

The project will involve 15 young people every Tuesday for 10 weeks, from September 20.

Workshops will cover traditional music and song, music arranging, composition, creative music-making, voice work and performance skills.

This will be followed by an autumn weekend school culminating in several concerts.

Candidates must be 18 or above. A knowledge of Scottish or Irish traditional music would be beneficial. They may have music qualifications, or have learned their skills outwith formal education. The deadline for applications is September 5. To apply, or for information, contact Kaela Rowan by email kaela.rowan@scotborders.gov.uk or call 01750 724901.
