Ailie Robertson's Traditional Spirits; Ruitheam Beatha: Uisge Beatha
In this world premiere concert, award winning clarsach player Ailie Robertson explores whisky making and marries it with our rich culture of traditional music, creating a new composition that ‘paints’ the whisky industry in soundscapes, from barley in the fields to cask and glass. Joining her to blend their sounds and instruments with the world of whisky are seven of Scotland’s finest musicians;
Patsy Reid (fiddles),
Fraser Fifield (whistles/saxophone),
James Ross (piano),
Adam Sutherland (fiddle),
Mattie Foulds (percussion),
Conrad Molleson (double bass)
