About SRSNH

Founded in 1988, the Strathspey & Reel Society of New Hampshire seeks to preserve and promote Scottish culture through the playing of traditional Scottish music.

With over 100 members, the group gathers monthly to play music and learn about the rich heritage of the musical traditions of Scotland. Membership is open to musicians of any level, from beginner to expert. Please visit the membership page for more information.

The SRSNH holds Gatherings on the last Sunday of the month from September through June. These Gatherings, held in New Hampshire’s capital city of Concord, run from 12:30-4:00 p.m.

Each Gathering starts with an exercise to get everyone warmed up and in tune. Then, the Music Director leads the group through the playing of that month’s musical selections, which are chosen and published a couple of weeks before the Gathering. At the mid-point of the Gathering, the group puts down it instruments and enjoys tea, snacks, and conversation. After the break, the remainder of the Gathering features a jam session or occasionally a rehearsal for an upcoming performance.

The group performs several times each year at events as varied as the New Hampshire Highland Games to an afternoon concert at a local nursing home.

The SRSNH offers scholarships to its members for attendance at music workshops, camps, and festivals.

A 501(c)3 non-profit organization, the SRSNH is governed by an elected Board of Directors who appoint a Music Director to pilot the group’s musical and artistic course.
