Celtic Connections 2019
The Alistair McCulloch Trio was delighted to have its own show at Celtic Connections 2019 as part of Showcase Scotland. We had a great concert at St Andrews in the Square on 30th January.
Burns meets Gow
History was made at the Gaiety Theatre Ayr on 23rd January when Niel Gow's fiddle and the 'Gregg' violin linked to Robert Burns were brought together for a very special evening of music. It was a pleasure to work with Pete Clark on the 'Twa Fiddles' to perform a programme of 18th century fiddle music associated with the two gentlemen. Burns met Gow in the village of Inver during his highland tour of 1787 and they exchanged letters and music. It is hoped that this will be the first of a series of similar performances in the future.
ITV I was pleased to be involved in the Burns day feature on ITV's 'This Morning' on 25th January. On location at Glen App Castle in South Ayrshire the feature went out live with a performance of the strathspey 'Highland Whisky'.
Chuffed to announce that Coila has been crowned Wedding Band of the Year, Scotland 2018 in the LUX Global Entertainment Awards.
