Mid-Armagh Community Network also runs a very successful Ulster-Scots fiddle class. Under the name of "Fiddle Steeks", the class has performed before the public to some acclaim. The class currently consists of "16 people, both young and not so young , under the skillful guidance of Keith Lyttle from Waringstown in Co Armagh. Keith is teaching them skills which their forefathers had in abundance and we are delighted that some have brought along their own 'family' fiddles on which they wish to learn to play."

In the accompanying audio recording, Myrtle McGuinness, Development Officer for the Ulster-Scots organisation Mid-Armagh Community Network (MACN), describes their programme of cultural events and her own appreciation of her Ulster-Scots identity.
