Norwegian fiddler and Scotish harpist tour Scotland
Nils Økland, the Norwegian Hardanger fiddle virtuoso, and young Scottish harpist Catriona McKay will tour Scotland in March with their sonically fine manipulation of their respective countries' folk traditions.
Nils Økland is a remarkable fiddle player, performing on both Hardanger fiddle, violin, viola and d’amore, who operates at the interface between Norwegian folk music, improvisation and contemporary music. Creating dark, evocative and timeless soundscapes, his music has won an international audience and has made him a sought-after musician for various collaborations with other musicians.
In concert they will take the audience on a traditional music voyage with unique modern voices.
