Scottish Fiddle Journey
Alastair Savage with Euan Drysdale & Eddie McGuire

Friday 30th May 2014 at 7.30 pm

Scottish Fiddle Journey with Alastair Savage and friends.
A concert of traditional and classic violin music.  Entitled 'The Scottish Fiddle Journey' Alastairs group will include Eddie Maguire and and Euan Drysdale, both well known musicians/and or composers.

 

Alastair Savage


A violinist, trained at RSMAD in Glasgow and the Royal Academy in London ,and a BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra player.  However he grew up as an award winning Folk Fiddler and ‘returned' to his roots forming the Trio with Euan Drysdale and Iain Crawford.  He composes his own tunes and has recorded three albums of folk music.


Euan Drysdale


Originally a Trumpet player, he studied at the RSMAD.  Now better known as a guitar and keyboard player, he is a renowned composer and instrumentalist. A founder member of the Alastair Savage Trio, he has played with ‘Soft Monster' and ‘Big Vern and the Shootahs' as well as recording his own music


Eddie McGuire


A member of the Whistlebinkies, he frequently collaborates with a wide rang of musicians.  A talented and famed composer in his own right, he joins Alastair and Euan to play on the flute.  He is a multi instrumentalist, so he may play ‘anything' on the night ! The Whistlebinkies are fortunate in having one of Scotland's leading composers in its ranks. His suites ‘Inner Sound', ‘MacBeth' and ‘Albannach' have taken Scottish traditional music to a new level of musical complexity.



Tickets will be priced at £8 and will include at least a glass of wine. 

Future Events



We are planning to have concerts given by a Classic/Folk duo from Glasgow, also one to be given (hopefully) by the Last of Barrett's Privateers', a New Folk group from Edinburgh.  They are currently rehearsing in St Mary's and will soon be recording their first CD in the Church
