On Friday 9th May at 8pm Distil will host their 8th Showcase concert. The 2014 showcase will host 11 brand new compositions from traditional musicians and performed by the fabulous Mr McFall’s Chamber.
Since the first showcase concert Distil have commissioned over 80 new pieces of music and each year we are excited to discover more new music. The concert is held in Stirling’s Tolbooth and starts at 8pm. It is always an exciting experience for the audience and the composer and when we listen to brand new music being performed for the first time.
Simon Thoumire, Creative Director of Hands Up for Trad says “It’s amazing the creative talent in Scottish traditional music scene. Every year we hear exciting new ideas coming from musicians who have passed through our Distil project”
