Hamish Napier is a Scottish folk multi-instrumentalist and composer inspired by the heritage and nature of his native landscape of Strathspey. Join us as he performs his award winning album The Woods (Album of the Year, Scots Trad Music Awards), funded by local habitat restoration project Cairngorms Connect. Inspired by the flora and fauna of Scotland’s native forests, Hamish’s music is innovative, incorporating sounds from jazz, electronica and classical music, while also celebrating and respecting Scotland’s rich musical heritage. Humorous, engaging and heart-warming, Hamish’s performances are often interdisciplinary, incorporating poems and stories about nature, folklore and communities. The Woods is the third album in his Strathspey Pentalogy - a 5-album exploration and celebration of his homeland, following on from The River and The Railway.
Hamish, who plays wooden flutes and piano, will be joined by two of Scotland’s finest folk musicians, Patsy Reid (fiddle) and Innes Watson (guitar and viola).
