The Northern Arc Sessions is a new strand in our programme. We ask celebrated Scottish artists who in the world they would love to play on stage with and we make it happen. It’s a one-off, world exclusive.
To start the season, acclaimed North-east fiddler, Paul Anderson, the finest Scots fiddler of his generation invited Grammy Award winning Cape Breton fiddler Natalie MacMaster to join him on stage for this one-off world exclusive performance in Aberdeen. MacMaster is world renowned as an electrifying performer and thrills audiences across the globe on stage, radio and TV.
Together theypay tribute to composer James Scott Skinner, ‘The Strathspey King’ on the 170th anniversary of his birth. With dynamic band Old Blind Dogs, who remain at the cutting edge of Scotland’s roots revival, BBC Radio Scotland’s Mark Stephen, young fiddlers and dancers, the night is a celebration of musical traditions exported from Scotland to Canada.
“To call Natalie MacMaster the most dynamic performer in Celtic music today is high praise, but it still doesn't get at just how remarkable a concert artist this Cape Breton Island fiddler has become” The Boston Herald
Masterclass– Natalie MacMaster and Paul Anderson will lead a masterclass with young fiddlers at 11am on Saturday 5 October in the Music Hall. Free entry.
