WoodMusICK is an interdisciplinary network about wood's role in music - today and in the past.  It follows on from the COST Action of the same name. WoodMusICK – WOODen MUSical Instrument Conservation and Knowledge) aims to combine forces and to foster research on wooden musical instruments in order to preserve and develop the dissemination of knowledge on musical instruments through interdisciplinary research. 

We are very happy to announce the next WoodMusICK2019 conference will take place on the 17th - 18th October 2019, hosted by the University of Edinburgh at St Cecilia’s Hall.  This conference is in association with The Wood Technology Society of IOM3.

The theme this year will be Wood, Musical Instruments, and Sound. This covers a wide scope including:

  • Conservation of historical wooden musical instruments;
  • Wood and the making of new instruments;
  • The role of wood in performance and musical heritage;
  • Wood and acoustics, from instruments to concert halls.

We are keen to have participation from makers, musicians, conservators, wood scientists and even foresters.  If you are interested in both wood and music, this is the conference for you!

We are thinking about having a conference ceilidh one evening. A ceilidh is a social event with Scottish folk music and traditional dancing (involving everyone).
