We have a great concert to look forward to as part of the Blas festival in St Andrew’s Cathedral (Inverness) on Sunday the 6th of September
As well as the choir, you can hear the golden tones of Inverness singer Angus Macleod, and the haunting melodies of the Mairi MacInnes band, featuring Arron Jones (bouzouki), Stevie Fyvie (percussion), James Mackintosh (pipes/whistles) and Hamish Napier (piano/flutes).
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.
