Odenwald children learn about Scottish culture

While in the Odenwald as entertainers for the Burns Supper, Falkirk music teachers Susanne Bell and Gareth Lloyd were invited to two schools as part of a music project to teach children through music and song a little about Scottish culture.

With Susanne playing accordion and tin whistle and Gareth on guitar, almost 60 children learned songs in English with actions and dance and they particularly enjoyed a Gaelic song about the love of porridge! In return the Odenwald children performed a song about potatoes! Everyone participating and watching had a great time.
