Between Islands: Shore to Shore

Sat 15 July

When the earliest Scottish emigrants travelled to the Americas they brought their traditional music with them, spawning the birth of Bluegrass and influencing the country genre overall. It is then perhaps not surprising that this type of music has always been a recognisable and popular genre across the Scottish islands, with the ballads and tunes having a familiar ring within the Islands strong musical traditions. This concert brings together musicians from An Lanntair’s Between Islands project, which encourages collaboration between artists from the Western and Northern Isles, in a celebration of all things Country.

Featuring Willie Campbell (Lewis) Arthur Nicholson and Jenny Keldie (Shetland) and Sarah McFadyen (Orkney), with some special guests, this is one not to be missed!
