Chris & Catriona will be performing music from their critically acclaimed album 'White Nights'.
“Scottish harp and Shetland fiddle are a marriage made in heaven...wonderful music played by musicians who are at the top of their game.”
The Glasgow Herald
"a divine concoction of tradition and bold imagination.... unimpeachable."
The Irish Times
Catriona McKay (Scottish harp) and Chris Stout (Shetland fiddle) play a dynamic and adventurous exploration of traditional Scottish music. Performing together for 15 years, they are connected to the traditions of their instruments while being highly aware of and enthralled by the possibilities they hold. They pursue a path to explore sounds that connect and challenge.
Their self-penned 2010 album White Nights is a modulation between past and present, between summer and winter, between reliability and risk. Music inspired by the heightened senses during the long light nights of summer in the north, and in contrast, music which celebrates reflections of winter landscapes and sounds.
Through colour and depth of tone, they abandon themselves on a journey to create one sound, yet they carve out space for one another to allow a musical dialogue. It is this unity along with communication that makes their music so compelling.
Thank you to DeVere Hotels and DeVere Academy of Hospitality for very kindly providing the hotel accomodation for our musicians tonight.
