Northern Lights brings together 6 world-class musicians from Scotland, Northern-Ireland and Scandinavia in a cross-cultural celebration of new music that bridges the divide between folk and classical, the traditional and the avant-garde in 6 new compositions.

Brian Finnegan (Flook, Kan) – Flute, Whistle
Niall Vallely (Buille) – Concertina
Ailie Robertson (The Outside Track) – Harp
Donald Grant (Elias Quartet) – Fiddle
Nikolaj Busk (Dreamers Circus) – Accordion, Piano
Ale Carr (Dreamers Circus, Basco) – Guitar, Cittern, Bouzouki

As musical collaborations go, this promises to be an extraordinary musical interchange. Individually, each member has carved out a reputation for not just mastering their chosen fields, but rising above, redefining and renewing the musical world they come from. In Northern Lights, they come together to premiere 6 new compositions, written by each musician specifically for the ensemble, resulting in a concert of inspiring new music, grounded in tradition, but shot through with the adrenaline of contemporary influences. This is music that is both ancient and utterly new.
