RSAMD Students’ Concert

Buidheann tàlantach bheothail de dh’òigridh a tha seo ‘s iad air an treas bliadhna aig an sgoil chliùiteach an Glaschu – Acadamaidh Rìoghail Ceòl ‘s Dràma na h-Alba.

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.

Urgent casting call for male fiddler for Theatre Hebrides production


Hi Dolan,

I don’t know if you can help, but with all your fiddling contacts, maybe you can help. We need a male fiddler, age 25 upwards, to not only play/perform/compose but also to act in our forthcoming production of “Roghainn nan Daoine”. Gaelic preferred, but not necessary as the playing ability is paramount. I know it’s short notice, but the period we require is 3-26 May, rehearsal period in Stornoway, and 27 May to 19 June, touring period throughout Scotland. This is a paid position at £***.** per week (just above Equity minimum rates). If you can think of anyone who may be interesteed and fits the bill, please pass this on! Many thanks for your help with this.

Best regards,
Animisha McCoy
