Northern Streams: Evening Concert - Hawick
Thursday 2 April
Heart of Hawick, Kirkstile, Hawick, TD9 0AE
Ante Mikkel (featured in Joanna Lumley’s ‘Northern Lights’ BBC TV programme) and Inger-Biret Gaup provide a rare opportunity to hear "joik", the unique vocal tradition of the northern Saami culture from a very special father and daughter duo.
Kirstine Sand (fiddle) and Marie Sønderby Larsen (piano) met at the Carl Nielsen Academy, and play a mix of traditional music and new tunes, influenced by Kirstine’s time on the Newcastle Traditional Music Degree course. They will be supported by
Carly Blain, Rachel Cross and Iain Petrie (Scottish Borders): Fiddlers Carly Blain and Rachel Cross (from The House Sisters group and Border Fiddles) – both graduates of the Newcastle University Traditional Music course have been working with Iain Petrie - a local singer/songwriter. They will play tunes and sing songs from the Scottish Borders and the rest of Scotland, as well as music from Scandinavia and their own compositions.
In partnership with TMSA Borders Branch & Scottish Borders Council.
