The Buchan Heritage Players were formed in Dec 2006 to promote the playing and singing of traditional music in the Buchan Area of North East Scotland. The group is open to all musicians and is particularly aimed at encouraging everybody of all musical abilities to enjoy and play traditional music. Our main aim is to keep traditional music alive in the Buchan Area and pass it on to the next generation.

We meet on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month in Longside Parish Church Hall at 19-00 until 21-00. The first hour of our practice is to introduce the tunes at a slower pace for the youngsters (no upper age limit !) to learn. Sheet music will be provided free of charge and there is no fee for joining us.

At present we have Fiddlers, Accordionists, Keyboard, Piano, Guitar, Banjo, Mandola, Ukelele and Bodhran.

We are often asked to play at various venues throughout the local area which is a great learning curve for the younger members playing in front of an audience.

We are also supported by the Buchan Heritage Society

If you would like to join us, find out a bit more information or book us for some traditional Scottish entertainment, feel free to telephone Liz or John on 01779 821631. Alternatively you can drop us an e-mail at john.slaven@btinternet.com
