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.
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.
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
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.
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
