Fittingly for Scotland’s oldest instrument, new harp music has been a cutting-edge force in our contemporary folk renaissance since Sileas and Savourna Stevenson’s early days. Building on that proud track-record, three of those artists’ leading current successors present their own original compositions. Gillian Fleetwood’s piece, inspired by the interplay of human ingenuity with nature, features an extremely rare, 205-year-old Erard pedal harp, belonging to Arbroath arts centre Hospitalfield House, together with clársach, string duo and guitar/electronic manipulation. Sarah MacNeil’s NorthBay, incorporating string quartet, was composed on Barra, where she began playing the harp at the Fèis, while first-class RCS graduate Rebecca Hill showcases material from her forthcoming debut EP.


A limited number of additional tickets will be released through via the Tron Theatre Box Office from November 24th.
