Highly recommended - if you have moved out of the age range for Tinto and are looking for a summer fix of music, stimulating company, and good crack, look no further. The campus at Aberdeen University during the International Youth Festival is a fun place to be. There will be opportunities to perform at the Lemon Tree, and the Music Hall, and the chance to really explore your music. The Coast String Fiddlers from BC, Canada, will be around this year too, so the sessions should be great. Check it out!
