The Distil Showcase will return again to the Tolbooth in Stirling on Friday 8th April 2016 at 8pm. The concert showcases the new and exciting music of traditional music composers. We are very lucky to have Mr McFall’s Chamber as our resident house band once again. You can buy tickets for this fab night of music here!
Simon Thoumire has written music called Merry Lads of Ayr. Here’s some information about it.
This is a piece based on a Scottish reel – The Merry Lads of Ayr found in the Athole Collection. I chose it because I thought it would fit well with the instruments of the quintet. I’ve tried to make the piece fun to play (time will tell!) whilst keeping a ‘traditional’ sense about it.
