On Friday, i went to see a few folk bands in the Usher Hall - part of Ceilidh Culture. Ross Couper and Tom Oakes were playing along with Rura and Manran. It was a great night. Ross Couper is one of the best fiddlers in Scotland in my view.
I hadn't seen Rura or Manran before. They played an interesting mix of tunes and songs and Manran has recently had a lot of success. It was a great night.
Went to see the Edinburgh Film Music Orchestra play in the Reid Concert Hall last week. It was great. They played film music of Morricone, Shostakovich, Xiong, Saint-Saëns and Durant. A couple of Stevenson students were playing - well done guys. Two of the pieces were played with lights off and films running. Must be difficult to get the timing just right but they were note perfect. Great lead violinist.
