The 'Alistair McCulloch Trio' annual summer Scottish tour has become a firm fixture on the folk music calendar. Booked to appear with us in 2020 the gig was cancelled for obvious reasons..... but now we are DELIGHTED to be welcoming them back to Drumnadrochit!
Featuring champion fiddler McCulloch, alongside past Scottish folk musician of the year, Aaron Jones of Old Blind Dogs and the Kate Rusby Band on bouzouki, guitar and vocals and former Capercaillie whistle wizard Marc Duff, the trio has gained a formidable reputation for its dynamic concert performances.
Collectively Alistair, Marc and Aaron have appeared on dozens of albums over the years and after many requests they have finally recorded a studio album as a trio. From driving reels and jigs to tender airs and expressive songs, Off the Hook perfectly encapsulates the feel of their live shows.
Blending traditional, contemporary and self-penned material the album showcases the combined talents of three of Scotland's most respected and established traditional musicians.
Did you know.....Alistair is the only fiddler allowed to play the Gregg violin which is owned by the National Trust for Scotland (NTS) and a museum piece at the Burns Museum in Alloway. The instrument was owned and played by William Gregg who was dance teacher to Robert Burns at the Bachelors Club in Tarbolton in the 1770s. The instrument was the main focal point celebrating 20 years of the NTS's US foundation and Alistair performed at a whole series of Burns events in New York, Boston, Washington DC, Chicago and Los Angeles.
