22 Jan

Celtic Connections & The Big Music Society presents Fraser Fifield and Matthew Welch's 'Blarvuster'

Jointly masterminded by pipers John Mulhearn and Calum MacCrimmon, The Big Music Society seeks to promote new creative approaches to the ancient art of Cèol Mòr, or piobaireachd, the classical music of the bagpipes. And they don’t come much newer or more creative than the genre-busting, cross-cultural artistry of tonight’s two performers, firstly Fraser Fifield, whose experimental explorations across Celtic, east European, jazz and electronic territories have established him among Scotland’s most original talents. 

New Yorker Matthew Welch, in his band Blarvuster, combines bagpipe tradition with Indonesian gamelan music, plus elements of jazz, rock and minimalism.
