I will be performing a new piece I`ve written as part of Glencairn`s Creative Place project. Its for handbells (The Bells of St Ninian`s!) , saxophone, percussion and lots of harps! Called ‘Ae Spark o Nature`s Fire’ it reflects a day in the creative life of this glen and its folk , from dawn chorus to star studded dark sky with a healthy dose of community discussion/argument and a lyrical waltz to bring everyone together!
I`ll also being playing in, local bass player, Stuart Macpherson`s composition which he has written for our newly formed quartet that includes Gavin Marwick on fiddle and Ruth Morris on nyckelharp.
These two pieces will be set in a whole song cycle of newly commissioned works from a range of brilliant songwriters inspired by local places and poetry – all performed by our community choir, Cain Chorus www.cairnchorus.co.uk
