Chris's Gigs is delighted to be hosting Project Smok along with fantastic support from Karys Watt and David Macfarlane. It promises to be an outstanding evening of music and one we recommend you don't miss.
Project Smok are a trio of multi award-winning musicians and they are Ali Levack (Pipes & Whistles), Pablo Lafuente (Guitar) and Ewan Baird (Bodhrán). They're making a big name for themselves on the Scottish music scene with their immense instrumental virtuosity, blistering drive, infectious rhythm and indeed, their delicate sensitivity.
Project Smok was originally a duo with Pablo and Ali, and they produced their debut record, ‘Horizons’ together. Virtuoso bodhran player Ewan joined them in 2018 to make the solid trio. With three brand new singles released last December, a nomination for ‘Best Up and Coming Artist’ at the 2018 Scots Trad Awards and a second album planned for Summer 2019, Project Smok have already made quite an impact on the Traditional Music Scene. They are on their way up and it is obvious why!
Project Smok will be supported by fiddle and guitar duo Karys Watt and David Macfarlane who combine a mix of original, trad and contemporary Scottish tunes with an energy and style that draws on the 10 years that they have performed together. Both have diverse musical backgrounds and eclectic tastes that influence their arrangements, bringing a unique and exciting performance to both traditional and original pieces alike.
All in all, it's going to be a great night!
