About BEMIS: St. Andrew’s Fair Saturday
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
First held on December 1 2018, St Andrew’s Fair Saturday is Scotland’s contribution to the fast-growing international Fair Saturday movement, launched in Bilbao in 2014, as an annual social and cultural response to Black Friday. BEMIS, the umbrella body supporting Scotland’s ethnic minority voluntary sector, and a key St Andrew’s Fair partner, jointly hosts this follow-up musical celebration with Bilbao’s Fair Saturday Foundation.
From Scotland, Dallahan fiddler Jani Lang and accordionist Paddy Callaghan lead an international line-up including Iranian singer/songwriter Farzane Zamen, Erick Valentin Mauricia on African percussion, Japanese clarsach player Riko Matsouka and saxophonist Martin Fell, while leading percussion-based group Orexa TX represent the Basque Country.
*Please note tonight’s concert will open with a short address and welcome from official representatives of Scotland and Bilbao.
