About The Secret North

The Secret North brings together 6 world-class musicians from Scotland, Ireland and Scandinavia in a cross-cultural celebration of new music that bridges the divide between folk and classical, the traditional and the avant-garde by combining ancient instruments with new composition.

Featuring
Donald Grant – Fiddle
Ailie Robertson - Harp
Sondre Meisfjord - Double Bass
Karen Tweed - Accordion
Jarlath Henderson - Whistle, Pipes
Marit Fält - Mandola

As musical collaborations go, this is an extraordinary musical interchange. Individually, each member has carved out a reputation for not just mastering their chosen fields, but rising above, redefining and renewing the musical world they come from. In The Secret North, they come together to premiere 6 new compositions, written by each musician specifically for the ensemble, resulting in a concert of ear-opening new music, grounded in tradition, but shot through with the adrenaline of contemporary influences. This is music that is both ancient and utterly new.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Secret North are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
