Amer//Hawksworth//Munro from RCS, Newcastle University and Univ. of Gothenburg
This newly established trio brings three distinct musicians into a fresh collaboration. Together they craft original compositions that flow organically whilst affording the listener breathing space. Individually, the group come from Scottish traditional music backgrounds, but here are influenced by more contemporary harmony and structure. The music is characterised throughout by a minimalist compositional style that utilises motifs, riffs and thematic development. All three members of the group are from the Central Belt of Scotland.
Chris recently studied Jazz at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, and Rosie graduated with a First Class Degree in Folk and Traditional Music from Newcastle University, where Catriona is still studying, although is currently based in Sweden on her year abroad.
HECLA from University of Highlands and Islands
HECLA is a traditional music trio featuring Ailis Sutherland (pipes/whistles), Ilona Kennedy (fiddle) and Kaitlin Ross (guitar/vocals) playing tunes in the Scottish and Irish idiom as well as Gaelic songs. Ilona and Kaitlin, former pupils of Plockton Music School and Ailis, a former World Pipe Band Champion, started playing together through their involvement with the Fèis movement. Currently based in the Western Isles where all three are studying at UHI for a BA in Applied Music, the trio has made appearances at Piping Live! and Celtic Connections. Having previously given performances under the working title of ‘Ailis, Ilona & Kaitlin’, the band takes its name from the beautiful and enigmatic hill in South Uist.
Josephine Sillars from Glasgow University and SAE
Originally from the Highlands, Josephine Sillars is a musician now living in Glasgow. Over the past few years she has toured throughout Scotland as well as playing in Europe and internationally, in addition to appearing at local festivals such as Belladrum and XpoNorth. Her debut EP was released in 2015, with a string of sold-out performances at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Her EP was met with positive reviews and was nominated for Solo Record of the Year for The Local Music Scene Awards 2015. Her latest single, ‘Vincent’ was launched at the world famous King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut and received its first national radio spin course of Roddy Hart on BBC Radio Scotland. After a busy summer of festivals in 2016, including a slot at Sandvikfest – an independent music and arts festival in Sweden – and a main stage slot at ButeFest, Sillars and her band are currently recording new material to be released in early 2017. Josephine has gained support from the likes of BBC Radio Scotland, Jim Gellatly, The Scotsman as well as various blogs and podcasts throughout the UK.
