A 30 year-long sees this remarkable duo weave their way seamlessly between glorious soundscapes and music of breathtaking simplicity. The intense and rugged coastal scenery and the dramatic seas that surround their respective origins in Fair Isle and Dundee are ever-present in this treasured duo sound. Virtuosic and cinematic, Chris and Catriona’s music charts a rhythmic and harmonic terrain that is all their own. The result is a dynamic and intrepidly adventurous sound that transcends genre yet remains immovably tethered to place.
This performance has their recent masterpiece Glenshee as its centre piece. Richly evocative music capturing the iconic Scottish Glen steeped in history with sky wide ties.
This event will last approximately 2 hours, including an interval.
