Ross Ainslie & The Sanctuary Band and Brighde Chaimbeul
January 20, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Acclaimed Perthshire piper and multi-instrumentalist Ross Ainslie Music launches his third solo album Sanctuary at Celtic Connections 2018. This new work is a distillation of his globe-trotting experiences in acts including Treacherous Orchestra, Salsa Celtica, India Alba and duos with Jarlath Henderson and Ali Hutton. An all-original, through-composed work, weaving in diverse world-music sounds, it’s performed here with album guests Steven Byrnes, Greg Lawson, Hamish Napier Music, James Lindsay and Cormac Byrne
Winner of the 2016 BBC Young Folk Award, when she was just 17, Skye piper Brighde Chaimbeul is one of Scotland’s fastest rising stars. While firmly rooted in her native Gaelic culture, her dynamic yet sensitive playing also draws on Bulgarian, Cape Breton and Irish traditions.
