A spectacular mix of virtuosity and vibrancy, this young group of performers are the 3rd year students on the BA Scottish Music course at the highly acclaimed Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama in Glasgow.
Formed in 2007, ‘Year 3’ are united by a love of traditional tunes and songs, combining fiddles, highland and border pipes, flutes, whistles, piano, guitar, voice, harp, cello and accordion to create their eclectic sound. No strangers to the Scottish music scene, the group includes accomplished talent like Paul McKenna, whose self titled band recently won Best Up and Coming Act at the Scots Trad Music Awards 2009, and piper James MacKenzie, a finalist of the 2008 Young Traditional Musician of the Year Awards. Over the summer, both Lynsey MacRitchie and Lauren Weir played alongside Paolo Nutini and Phil Cunningham at the high profile festival T in the Park and again played alongside Phil at the 2009 BBC live broadcast at Hogmanay. Directed by Phil Cunningham, the group are currently recording an album with all 4 year groups of the BA Scottish music course. Year 3’s dynamic sound and energetic performance pushes convention while continuing the path of tradition.
