Suzanne Fivey teaches Andra video at Fèis Rois.
"I had the pleasure of teaching the wonderful Andra at Fèis Rois in Ullapool last week during my group piano classes. Visiting from Romania, she is completely blind, but with perfect pitch and an astonishing ability to retain phrases she learnt my accompaniment to Laxo Burn in just over 10 minutes during a very brief one to one lesson we manage to squeeze in. We got this wee video just at the end of it. Listen out for her harmonies on each down beat, this isn't just a straight forward vamp. She was amazing, and I'll never forget how wonderful it was to work with her."
