Celtic Connections Scotland

Dear Sandy, I'm writing to let you know that there is another chance to hear/see my new voices commision which was commissioned by Celtic Connections festival 2006. This year its being performed in the Tron Theatre, 8pm on tuesday the 23rd January. Tickets cost 12.50/10.50. Her commissioned piece was a shining diamond in the tiara of the festival. Tight orchestration and subtle yet complex tunes brought My Edinburgh alive for all the audience. A personal musical journey through the town of her upbringing brought the place to life in a way that few musicians have managed. Conjuring up pictures as diverse as the elegance and formality of Edinburgh New Town; Grove Street (the street of 100 smells); the sound of horses on cobbled streets; the exuberance of a pub session at Sandy Bells, a favourite watering hole of Edinburgh musicians; to the dark side of Edinburghs history with a dark, harsh and claustrophobic piece on the notorious Burke and Hare.
