STU BROWN/JER REID/CATRIONA MCKAY IN CONCERT OCTOBER 14, 2015

NEW MUSIC
A chance to hear the latest work from a Lyth Residency by three musicians: Catriona McKay, one of the world's leading exponents of the Scottish harp who pushes it to its limits; Jer Reid, an established figure in Glasgow in the world of improvisation; Stu Brown who has built a strong and diverse musical career in Scotland that encompasses all kinds of percussion. Expect some cutting-edge stuff from musicians exploring new sonic territory.

This is an opportunity to hear the latest work from a Lyth Residency. These accomplished musicians are spending a week here developing new repertoire. You can expect some cutting-edge experimentation with Scottish music being taken apart and put together in an exciting new way.

Catriona McKay

As one of the world's leading exponents of the lever harp Catriona McKay's collaborations and solo performances, recordings and teaching have challenged the boundaries of her instrument and made her a point of pure inspiration for international audiences. She is a diverse musician who pushes one of Scotland's traditional instruments to its limits. She is widely recognized for her unique style, inventiveness and daring rhythmic use of the harp to produce some of the most original and genre-defying music today. Catriona was awarded Instrumentalist of the Year 2014 at the Scots Trad Music Awards. In Nov 2014 she composed a new work Isflak with fellow Scots musician Chris Stout which they performed with the Moscow City Symphony - Russian Philharmonic and Boris Berezovsky in Moscow.
