LEGACY – Youth

Dawn Martin, fiddler, from Irvine

Legacy inevitably lives on in youth – but it can take a generation or more to appreciate the results.  How many people went on to make music throughout their lives because of Marymass?  How many people started playing an instrument at the John Galt guitar classes?  In the photograph of one of the John Galt guitar class groups we can identify specific legacy over three generations of the Loughran family.  Dave Loughran, one of the tutors, his daughter Rebecca Loughran-Muir (who graced the cover of the Marymass publicity in a recent year), and now in Rebecca’s children who are off to university to study music.
