The Traditional Arts Team brings a very special guest to Birmingham on Sunday 13 May. Alistair Anderson is internationally recognized as the master of the English Concertina and one of the leading performers on the Northumbrian Pipes. He delights audiences with the lyrical slow airs and lively dance tunes of Northumberland and with his own music, which has grown out of his love of traditional music. He will perform at the music venue Tower of Song at 8pm, with support from local singers.

Admission £7, tickets from 0121 247 3856 or, more info at

Alistair will also lead a traditional music workshop for all instruments during the day. Tickets for the workshop are £20 and must be booked in advance. More info at
