The choir is off on it’s travels again early in the new year – We are performing alongside Blazin’ Fiddles as part of the Strings Attached – The Next Generation concert at Celtic Connections.
Featuring the fantastic talents of singer-songwriters Adam Holmes, Rachel Sermanni and Aoife O’Donovan, the concert is built around the art of accompaniment, with the choir providing the vocal backdrop. Here’s Rachel performing a song written by Adam, just to give you a flavour:
The following night, the men of the choir (performing as ‘Trosg’) will be providing backing for a stellar lineup of Gaelic singers, as An Lòchran attempt to re-create the legendary atmosphere of the hallowed hostelry Bùth Dhòmhnaill ‘ic Leòid, within the Strathclyde Suite.
Mary Ann Kennedy will lead a troupe comprising Arthur, Eilidh and Ruairidh Cormack, Rona Lightfoot, Robert John MacInnes, Sineag MacIntyre, and the choir’s own Angus MacLeod.
There may be a dram taken.
