Surrounded by images of the local area, Hamish and Su-a performed in front of a small audience - and helped guide the audience through a wee whisky tasting as well, courtesy of The Cairn Distillery, which has recently opened outside Grantown.
Hamish Napier is a Scottish folk multi-instrumentalist and composer inspired by the heritage and nature of his native landscape of Strathspey. His most recent album, The Woods, is the third of his Strathspey pentalogy and won Album of the Year at Scots Trad Music Awards 2020.
Su-a Lee is one of Scotland’s most versatile, adventurous and charismatic cellists. She works extensively within the UK classical and folm music scenes and is a long-standing member of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, where she is assistant principal cello. Su-a has also just released her debut solo album, Dialogues, celebrating decades of folk music friendship and featuring a series of duets with some of Scotland’s finest folk musicians as well as top players on the international folk, tango and classical scenes.
It was a lovely occasion - we really enjoyed it and wanted to share some pictures with you.
