Happy Heidmas one and all!


We hope this finds you all warm and well. We know its a busy time of year but just wanted to remind you that the Pathhead Choir and Community Singing Group Christmas Concert is coming soon and then the traditional PMC family ceilidh. There are also some opportunities to do some relaxed Xmas shopping too – no Black Friday stampedes are expected for our new merchandise but we’ll have some burly bassists and drummers on standby just in case!

Have a great festive season wherever you are and we look forward to seeing you soon. Don’t forget to stay in touch via our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter @TwitPMC

Very best wishes
Pathhead Music Collective





The Pathhead Choir led by Sophie Bancroft and Gina Rae have been hard at work as have the Community Singers led by Corrina Hewat so do come and enjoy the results. Bring your pocket money and do some Christmas shopping too – as well as a bumper raffle to raise funds for the Pathhead Youth Project Talent Show 2015, there will be a chance to buy CDs including Sophie Bancroft’s brand new album. Our friend Adie Baako will have a stall selling crafts from Ghana AND you can sign up for his New Year dance classes (see local events below). So that’s beautiful singing, great gifts and healthy New Year resolutions all in one place. See you there!

soph_songs_cdcoverSophie Bancroft’s new album is on the press as we speak (and she is more than a little excited to see the end result). Recorded earlier this year at Castlesound Studios it features American pianist Louis Durra and Tom Lyne. Copies will be available at the Choir concert so bring your purse.

adieAdie has trained as a traditional Ghanian Dancer for over ten years and this is his third trip to Scotland. In this course he will explore some new dances as well as developing one or two others already taught in Pathhead earlier this year. Both the children’s & adult courses are suitable for all abilities. You should wear loose clothing and be prepared for a healthy workout, but fear not, this form of dance is very accessible and fun for all!

Adie has been working with the Akrowa Drumming & Dance group in Ghana to make new recordings for us to work with over a six week period, so whilst we will miss the “live” Scottish drumming, we will have the real African thing playing through the PA.

Booking is essential. You can reserve a place on this course by e-mailing amygeddes@mac.com If you have any questions, please call Amy on 07968 009903.
