The Celtic Sessions/Na Seiseanan Ceilteach presents
The Gordon Duncan Experience host a night celebrating one of Scottish music’s most prolific and influential musicians and composers and the man behind their name. The GDE will perform their own interpretation of Gordon's classic Circular Breath album with a line-up of young musicians from traditional, jazz and classical backgrounds. Horsecross’s Gaelic singing group Gle will also appear in a night celebrating Gordon’s legacy: developing young musicians, fresh original compositions and musical collaboration.
Two of Gordon’s protégés from his Vale of Atholl Pipe Band days, Ross Ainslie and Ali Hutton will headline the concert with their superb quartet, Symbiosis.
Ross and Ali, two of Scotland’s most prominent musicians and composers, bring together original compositions from their highly acclaimed albums, Symbiosis I and II, ranging from high octane jigs and reels to beautifully melodic slow airs. The music is a masterful blend of the old and the new, mixing elements of traditional, rock and electronic. They will be joined by percussionist Paul Jennings and Jenn Butterworth on guitar.
