‘If you enjoy modern acoustic Celtic-based music with plenty of bite and a long smoky finish, Traditional Spirits should tickle your palate nicely’ – Irish Music Magazine
Join us on Friday evening for Traditional Spirits—a vibrant musical tribute to whisky making from award-winning Scottish composer/harpist Ailie Robertson. Marrying Scotland’s rich musical culture with one of its oldest industries, Robertson is joined by some of the country’s finest trad musicians for a performance that paints a series of evocative musical soundscapes. In the cathedral’s atmospheric crypt, you’ll experience the crisp Islay dawn, be transported from the barley fields to the distillery before, at last, we encounter the vivid flavour of liquid amber.
Please note that the lower church is only accessible via staircase, and that, due to the layout of the vaulted crypt, some seats will have a restricted view of the performers.
