Bringing together six leading contemporary folk talents, sharing fruitfully diverse backgrounds, The Secret North began with five days’ intensive workshopping in a remote Highland studio last summer. Scotland’s Ailie Robertson (harp) and Donald Grant (fiddle), together with Jarlath Henderson (uillean pipes/whistles), Karen Tweed (accordion), Norway’s Sondre Meisfjord (bass) and Swedish/Norwegian mandola ace Marit Fält all contributed new original compositions, charting fresh common ground between Celtic and Scandinavian tradition, jazz and classical music.
Forging fresh connections between ancient western and eastern cultures, young Irish/Iranian quartet Navá interweave the sounds of banjo, guitar, santoor (Persian hammered dulcimer), tar (a narrow-waisted lute), double bass and tombak drum.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Secret North and Nava are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
