Harp Double Bill: The Swan of Salen and Pippa Reid-Foster
The Willow Trio performing The Swan of Salen

The Swan of Salen is a multimedia folk created by The Willow Trio and production company Ballet Folk. The Swan of Salen Project is a multimedia adaptation of the heartbreaking tragedy of Tchaikovskys Swan Lake and  the parallel Gaelic legend, Eala Shàilein.

Featuring a unique blend of Tchaikovsky's iconic music and traditional melodies played live by The Willow Trio, enchanting footage of ballet dancers performing stunning choreography by Deborah Norris of Ballet Folk will be projected behind the  musicians as they perform, transporting audiences to another time and place.

These performances will be the first tour of The Swan of Salen and as well as performing the work as a whole, we will also be celebrating the release of the album of the same name.  Released on Friday 17th February, The Willow Trio's debut album forms the musical backdrop to the ballet and these albums will be for sale.

Pippa Reid-Foster

Pippa Reid-Foster is a contemporary music composer and performer who works as a soloist and in ensembles. Recent collaboration with a Finnish performer resulted in a summer 2022 British/Finnish tour.

Pippa began her professional career after graduating from Scotland's Royal Conservatoire, where she specialised in composition and performance. Driftwood Harp, her debut album, retained strong roots to her Scottish heritage, but the minimalist influence was becoming apparent. Following this, her composition Murmurations was performed at the Distil Showcase performances, allowing her to write for and perform with the renowned ensemble McFall's Chamber. Pippa was recently asked to write a piece for Issie Barratt's Interchange. This is a new piece written for a ten-piece all-female contemporary jazz group. Pippa's collaboration with Finnish kantele musician Eva Alkula has resulted in an exchange of ideas that has pushed the frontiers of the Finnish Kantele and the lever harp, two traditional instruments from different cultures.

Pippa is currently working on her forthcoming solo album, which will be released in spring 2024. Even though her instrument, the Clarsach (lever harp), is regarded traditionally Scottish, her technique incorporates electronic looping and effects, focusing on current music with strong minimalist elements.
