Event description

Description

The Secret North brings together 6 world-class musicians from Scotland, Ireland and Scandinavia in a cross-cultural celebration of new music that bridges the divide between folk and classical, the traditional and the avant-garde by combining ancient instruments with new composition.

Featuring

Donald Grant – Fiddle

Ailie Robertson - Har

Sondre Meisfjord - Double Bass

Karen Tweed - Accordion

Jarlath Henderson - Whistle, Pipes

Marit Fält - Mandola

As musical collaborations go, this is an extraordinary musical interchange. Individually, each member has carved out a reputation for not just mastering their chosen fields, but rising above, redefining and renewing the musical world they come from. In The Secret North, they come together to premiere 6 new compositions, written by each musician specifically for the ensemble, resulting in a concert of ear-opening new music, grounded in tradition, but shot through with the adrenaline of contemporary influences. This is music that is both ancient and utterly new.
