Event description

Description

Aidan O’Rourke is a fiddler, composer, producer and curator. He has pioneered a new sound in Scottish folk music and redefined traditional forms.

Aidan's new music is about storytelling. Taking inspiration from writer James Robertson and wrote a tune every day for a year. The result was last year’s sold-out "365: Vol 1", and its follow up "365: Vol 2", released on August 2019.

For this gig, Aidan will be presenting the music from his latest album, "365: Vol 2" recorded with Mercury Prize nominee Kit Downes (ECM). His music is built on the beauty of the miniature. It’s a collaboration between artists steeped in tradition but
constantly breaking new ground. Aidan’s playing and writing are renowned for deep lyricism and off-kilter twists, here paired with kaleidoscopic harmonies of Kit Downes on harmonium and piano.

Aidan says:

"Inevitably the melodies are rooted in my own background as a Scottish folk fiddler, but when Kit Downes gets involved he takes the harmonies to the most wondrous places”
