Adam Sutherland: Tunes‘n’Tales

About Adam Sutherland: Tunes‘n’Tales

A compelling and engaging performer and storyteller, Adam will entertain you with a 50/50 mix of tunes and tales with a selection of his own music and engaging stories of his life and work with insights into his childhood home, his myriad influences and the intriguing people who have inspired him along the way.

Adam is one of Scotland’s most innovative and exciting fiddlers, tunesmiths and teachers, widely known for his high octane, captivating performances fronting his own band and with festival favourites Treacherous Orchestra, Session A9, Peatbog Faeries and Croft No Five as well as with daredevil duo 'Nae Plans' alongside Hamish Napier. A prolific and talented composer, named Scots Trad Music Awards ‘Composer of the Year’ 2017, Adam was commissioned earlier this year to compose a new body of work ‘What a Story a Pair of Boots Could Tell’, inspired by the history and work of mountain rescue in the Cairngorms. His tunes are played in sessions and on stages worldwide and he has recently released his second solo CD: ‘Some Other Land’ - a critically acclaimed album of his own tunes that have come to him in his sleep. Never afraid to wear his influences on his sleeve, Adam's unique arrangements combine energy, inventiveness and craft to deliver frenetic Scottish reels, early 20th century jazz shapes and subtly Balkan diversions.

“Sutherland performs with such warm, impish personality that it was no great task to soften the rather formal edges of the New Auditorium with his trademark melodic touch, fluid transitions between tempos, gift for groove and love of 7/8 time signature” - The Scotsman
