Festival 2018 - Fèis 2018

An Lanntair Programme

Wednesday: 18th July 2018, 7.30pm

Between Islands Three

This third musical project under the Between Islands banner will once again feature musicians from the Northern and Western Isles in a collaborative concert. This time Saltfishforty (otherwise known as fiddler Douglas Montgomery and vocalist/guitarist Brian Cromarty) will be representing Orkney, with singers Jenny Keldie (Shetland) Kathleen Macinnes and Linda Macleod (Outer Hebrides) completing the line-up.

As this year sees the centenary of the First World War, the concert will feature music and song linked to that period of history, along with others that are relative to that theme, but all will originate from the Islands.

Dance to follow with Stephen Drummond & Band.

Tickets : £16 (includes dance)

Dance tickets available separately

Thursday: 19th July 2018, 7.30pm

Alasdair Fraser & Natalie Haas

The musical partnership between consummate performer Alasdair Fraser, "the Michael Jordan of Scottish fiddling", and brilliant Californian cellist Natalie Haas spans the full spectrum between intimate chamber music and ecstatic dance energy. Over the last 18 years of creating a buzz at festivals and concert halls across the world, they have truly set the standard for fiddle and cello in traditional music. They continue to thrill audiences internationally with their virtuosic playing, their near-telepathic understanding and the joyful spontaneity and sheer physical presence of their music.

Dance to follow with Graham Maclennan & Band.

Tickets : £16 (includes dance)

‘Blasta’ is the Gaelic word for tasty or delicious and this gourmet feast featuring some of the finest Hebridean singers in the modern era will certainly suit those with an appetite for quality.

Blasta brings together a group of multi-talented Gaelic singers - Anna Murray, Mischa Macpherson, Ceitlin Smith, Josie Duncan and Calum Alex Macmillan – to celebrate the traditional music of the Hebrides.

A specially commissioned project by HebCelt Festival, this exciting and culturally-rich show featured at last year’s Lorient Festival in Brittany as part of their Year of Scotland and at Celtic Connections earlier this year.

Tickets : £15

Saturday: 21st July 2018, 7.30pm

Arthur Cormack & Friends

Arthur Cormack began singing at the age of 8, winning the National Mòd Gold Medal - the premier award for Gaelic singing - at the age of 18.

Arthur has several albums to his credit as a solo singer including his 2017 release, Buanas. Although nearly 30 years may have passed since his last solo album, he has remained one of Scotland's most popular Gaelic singers and, in the interim, recorded several albums with the bands Mac-talla and Cliar in addition to guesting on a number of CDs. He has also continued to sing at concerts, cèilidhs and festivals as well as appearing regularly on television and radio.

Accompanying Arthur tonight will be Ingrid Henderson (piano and harp), Iain MacFarlane (fiddle, box, whistle) and daughter Eilidh Cormack on vocals.

Tickets : £15
