We are very excited to announce the long awaited return of the wonderfully talented duo Turadh back to the Meeting Place. Their music and original compositions transport you to another place and time. Evocative and mesmerising.
Clarsach player, Isbel Pendlebury, is a graduate of Strathclyde University’s esteemed BA applied music degree. A highly skilled performer having performed at events from the Lorient Interceltique music festival in France to the Metropolitan club in New York, she continues to compose and perform in the highlands alongside working as a secondary school music teacher.
Emma Donald has been playing the violin since the age of 8. Growing up, she enjoyed learning both classical and traditional Scottish music, and has strived to keep both passions running simultaneously. She has a first class honours degree in music from the University of Edinburgh. Emma is a founding member of the Fyrish String Quartet, the Hans Gal Trio, and Turadh. Emma and Isbel are both passionate composers of traditional music, which is what initially brought them together as a duo. They both strive to push boundaries of what is expected from their instruments along with composing original, exciting and challenging music. Their debut CD is called ‘Arenite’ and features six of their sets, all original music composed by the two of them. The first track on the CD is one they collaborated on called ‘The Tempest’ which is inspired by the coastline they both know so well.
The Mairs Family Band will play support.
