Kris Drever, Julie Fowlis, Aoife Ní Bhriain & Pádraig Rynne (Ireland/Scotland)
January 23rd @ 8pm
Embark on an odyssey of love, loss and wonder as four incredibly talented and creative musicians shape songs from ages past into something fresh, dynamic –and irresistible.
When it comes to moulding traditional sounds into contemporary songs, few match the inventiveness and heart-rending emotion of Orkney-born singer Kris Drever. Freewheeling guitarist with award-winning avant-folk trio Lau, Drever has been described by Q magazine as ‘the standard bearer’ of the folk music revival.
Drever’s no-holds barred approach is shared by Julie Fowlis, a silver-toned singer whose voice – ‘pure and elemental as a Hebridean seashore’ – has seen her become one of Gaelic music’s most celebrated global ambassadors.
Completing this outstanding line-up are multi-award winning fiddler Aoife Ní Bhriain, renowned for her technical virtuosity across both traditional and classical music genres and concertina player Padraig Rynne whose ensembles Guidewires, Dán and Triad have re-defined the boundaries of the traditional music world.
