We hope you enjoy the songs and illustrations Ceilidhmakers are working to make 

with primary schools along the River Dee.

This Songwriting and Placemaking project runs from February to June 2018, led by singers Christine Kydd and Ewan McVicar. The project is funded by the Scottish Government’s Youth Music Initiative through Creative Scotland. The YMI creates access to high quality music-making opportunities, enables young people to achieve their potential in or through music and supports the development of the sector for the benefit of young people.

We hope you enjoy these songs! For more information please contact Christine Kydd at Ceilidhmakers
