The Project

About the Project

Fleet Reflections is a project for songwriters and aspiring songwriters.

  • Open to all - no experience needed
  • Song writing workshops
  • Outdoor visits
  • Mentoring

Using the Fleet Valley as its focus, this project is open to all who would like to take part in a songwriting project.  Both experienced songwriters and those who have never tried before are welcome.

Using inspiring locations along the Fleet Valley National Scenic Area and on Cairnsmore of Fleet National Nature Reserve as its focus, Fleet Reflections gives you the opportunity to take part in a new musical project using our beautiful landscape and its stories as inspiration.

We will provide workshops, mentoring, and a closed online group for support and feedback. If you are more lyricist than musician, the project will help you collaborate with a musician.

Selected songs will be performed at Gatehouse events over the next year - Midsummer Music, Big Lit 2018, Feis Rois, The Bakehouse, Mill Sessions.

A special Mill Session will perform the songs and members of the Lost Wasp collective will assist with performance as required.  Songs will be recorded and they will be available online.

Resources and guidance is available here to help you get started and this will be added to as the project advances.

This project is for all - young or old, experienced or novice - it is supportive and friendly - join us and have a go.
