Scotland

  • Online:

Pianist/vocalist Hamish Napier (Back of The Moon, Man’s Ruin) and fiddler Adam Sutherland (Treacherous Orchestra, Session A9, Croft No. 5) have joined forces in a duo that explores material from traditional songs and tunes, to contemporary numbers, to their own compositions and improvisation. The duo’s raw creativity and their outstanding musical intuition shines in this set up and performances display a kind of electricity and excitement inspired by the off-the-cuff nature of their arrangements, allowing them to highlight every nuance. Each performance is unique and demonstrates the incredible talent of two of Scotland’s foremost musicians.

Hamish plays piano, keyboards, flutes, whistles and sings. Originally from Grantown-on-Spey in the Scottish Highlands, he moved down to Glasgow and immersed himself in its famously vibrant music scene while studying at universities there. Hamish has toured in Europe and North America with award-winning Scottish folk quartet Back of the Moon and recorded with leading Scottish musicians such as: Donald Shaw, Martyn Bennett, Duncan Chisholm, Treacherous Orchestra and Eddi Reader.

Adam comes from Errogie on the south shores of Loch Ness in the Highlands of Scotland. In his early thirties, he is one of Scotland’s most exciting fiddle players, composers and teachers in a thriving scene, drenched with talent. Outfits that Adam has been a part of include The Treacherous Orchestra, Session A9, Peatbog Faeries, Babelfish and Croft no. Five. He has also played with a host of other well-known acts including Salsa Celtica and Manran.
