Merlin Music Summer Camp Weekend

The Merlin Summer Camp Weekend was a wonderful weekend of music, great craic and wonderful people.  It was so lovely to see old friends again and play/learn some beautiful tunes together.  A big thank you to Iain Fraser and his family for sharing their wonderful place with us!

Some photos/memories of the weekend below


Saturday 31st July – Sunday 1st August 2021

We are delighted to confirm and announce that Merlin Music Director Iain Fraser and Merlin Music Manager, Kathy Stewart Kennedy will be leading this music filled weekend which will be located in the beautiful town of Jedburgh, Scottish Borders.  Camping and Motorhome spaces are available, although spaces are restricted.  Lunches/Saturday night BBQ/Tea/Coffees included.  The workshops will be held in a large marquee which will allow for Social Distancing.  Weather permitting we will also be outdoors as much as possible.

There are also a variety of Bed and Breakfast options if you are not local.  Hundalee Bed and Breakfast is not too far away as well as many others.

The Weekend will consist of

  • Arrival/Registration/Warm up/Introduction
  • Music Workshops
  • Lunches Included
  • Tea/Coffee/Meeting Folk
  • Tutor Concert
  • BBQ – Saturday Evening
  • Music Session
  • End of Weekend Concert
  • Great Craic
  • Seeing Old Friends

All the above will of course be done in accordance with all Covid-19 safety procedures in place.  Social distancing will be adhered too and where required masks will need to be worn.  Nearer the time Scottish Government Advice will also become clearer, and we may need to ask for attendees to have a negative Covid-19 test or indeed confirm if you have been vaccinated.


Summer Camp Spaces to include all activities, lunch for Saturday, Sunday and BBQ Saturday evening cost £200.00. For all campers and Motorhomes the total cost for the weekend is £215.00.
