Buttons & Bows

Buttons & Bows is a project to teach children from the age of 8 upwards the fiddle and button box accordion.

Ceòlas has been successful in fundraising for the continuation of the Buttons & Bows project for the near future. The project, which received support through the Western Isles Development Fund, the local Councillors and the Co-op, provides weekly tuition in the button box and fiddle to 50 children in Uist.

The project was originally established to reinvigorate the local styles of two lesser-played musical instruments amongst a younger generation.

Classes run across the islands, please contact us for more information.
