Aiseag – Skye, Glasgow, London and Inverness

life-bouys

On Thursday July 3rd, Aiseag sets sail from the beautiful setting of Sabhal Mòr Ostaig in Sleat.

A PRS Foundation New Music Biennial commission, Aiseag is inspired by the network of small ferries that ply the west coast of Scotland and Nova Scotia. It brings together the voices of Inverness Gaelic choir, the strings of the Scottish Festival Orchestra, and melds them with the sounds of traditional musicians, electronic and real-world sound.

Co-created by Mary Ann Kennedy, Scott Macmillan, Aonghas MacNeacail and Nick Turner, the piece brings together more than 50 musicians!

After its premiere in Skye Aiseag will move to the South Bank Centre in London before heading to Glasgow Concert Hall as part of the Commonwealth Games Cultural Program.

There will be a performance at Eden Court on August 1st.
