What better way to spend a Sunday afternoon then with great music, good company and nice bit of of baking and a brew?
Here's a taster....
2020 marks 20 years of touring and and a welcome return to Drumnadrochit (in-between tours of the USA & China...)
This trio gives a masterclass in traditional jigs and reels, with their fiddle, bouzouki and whistle turned up to 11.
The Alistair McCulloch Trio annual Scottish tour has become a firm fixture on the traditional music calendar. Featuring renowned Ayrshire fiddler McCulloch, alongside past Scottish folk instrumentalist of the year, Aaron Jones of Old Blind Dogs (bouzouki, guitar and vocals) and founder member of Capercaillie Marc Duff (whistles), the trio has gained a formidable reputation for its dynamic concert performances.
Collectively Alistair, Aaron and Marc have appeared on dozens of albums. Their widely acclaimed 'Off the Hook' release 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.
