THE Seymour Hill and Conway Community Network recently ran their first Ulster Scots Summer School in the Mosside Youth and Community Hall.
The Summer School attracted approximately 35 children from the local area. The children got a week of professional music workshops in flute, bagpipes, tin whistle, Lambeg drum, fiddle, as well as other aspects of the Ulster Scots culture including language, cooking and history.
The whole week was very hands-on for the young people and there was a lot of general knowledge of the Ulster Scots culture gained through completion of their workbooks throughout the week.
A spokesperson for the Network said: "A special thank you to all the artists who carried out the workshops including Willie Drennan, Mark Wilson, Allana Wright, Andrew Carlisle, Brendan Monaghan, Mark Anderson and Niall McClean from The Ulster Scots agency.
"The group would like to thank Jane Wallace of the Ulster Scots Agency for her support . Most of all a special thanks with gratitude to our two funders for the programme the Ulster Scots Agency and Lisburn City Council Leisure Services."
