In amongst myriad career achievements – from co-founding Folkworks and Newcastle University’s traditional music degree, to collaborations with jazz and world musicians – Northumbrian concertina/pipes maestro Alistair Anderson is a groundbreaking composer. Tonight’s programme comprises two such major works, 1999’s A Lindisfarne Gospel and 2013’ On Cheviot Hills, also featuring Sophy and Emily Ball, Rachel Newton, Andy May and Fiona Beyer.

The first half’s UK duo debut - and debut album preview - teams Shetland fiddler Kevin Henderson (Fiddlers’ Bid/Session A9/Nordic Fiddlers Bloc) with US pianist Neil Pearlman, whose core Cape Breton influences sizzle with jazz, funk and Latin accents.
