Corrina Hewat Quartet
This new grouping came together originally for Penfest 2016 and consists of four eclectic musicians: Corrina Hewat brought up in the Highlands on voice and harps, Kate Young from Borthwick on voice and fiddle, the Young Trad Musician finalist Heather Downie from Dunblane on harps and voice and Signy Jakobsdottir from Iceland originally, with roots in Gamelan, African and Indian drumming, on a delectable array of percussion and voice. The focus in tonight’s show will be Corrina’s music written around characters she has loved and lived alongside through the years.
Màiri Chaimbeul and Jenna Moynihan
Màiri from the Isle of Skye on clàrsach and Jenna from New York on fiddle, combine to make contemporary music rooted in the melodies of Scotland and Appalachia. They met in 2012 whilst studying at Berklee College of Music and are a product of the thriving and rich Boston music community. Jenna and Màiri have both been heavily steeped in tradition, but their music breathes new life into old tunes and merges their wide-ranging influences into a sound that is at once grounded and adventurous.
