CONCERT - SUNDAY NIGHT - PLEASANCE THEATRE - Scots Fiddle Festival
JENNA REID AND HARRIS PLAYFAIR
Spoil yourself with one of Shetlands finest and most accomplished modern-day fiddlers, accompanied by her long standing musical partner on piano, a simple setup, but musicianship of the highest quality.
Jenna Reids quicksilver musicality and melodic sensitivity are a prominent feature with groups including Blazin Fiddles and fiddle quartet Rant, and are particularly highlighted in her long-standing, mutually inspiring partnership with pianist Harris Playfair.
As their duetting on Reids 2015 Live in Shetland album illustrates, sparks fly when these two masterful players connect, and their recent meeting with Mr McFalls Chamber, Scotlands genre-defying, state-of-the-art string quartet, sees them enter a new and extremely exciting dimension.
The collaboration, culminating in Reids fifth album, Working Hands, released in January 2019, showcases not only her renowned fiddle virtuosity, but also her arranging and composition talents, with pieces written with the McFalls quality, personnel and personalities in mind, signalling a new phase of her outstanding career.
ALASDAIR WHITE TRIO
Alasdair Whites deep-rooted yet wide-ranging musicality reflects both his Lewis birthplace and current New York home, not to mention his 18 years globe-trotting with bands such as Battlefield Band, Daimh, and the Alan Kelly Gang. He returns to the Festival after several years with his trio, performing music from Alasdairs HebCelt commission, An Iuchair, alongside tunes from current and forthcoming projects.
