I love the way that traditional music has the power to break down barriers and inspire people. I wanted to play with other musicians and this set acted as the spur for me to do that. Price of a Pig is a well known Scottish fiddle tune and was one of the first traditional tune I heard. I love it! Lisnagun Jig is a tune I learnt from one of my friends. I added fiddle and double bass to this set as I wanted to explore a more contemporary treatment of traditional tunes using the clarsach.
Elinor Evans is a Scottish clarsach player from Edinburgh. Elinor is driven by her determination that the clarsach be regarded as an instrument in its own right and is actively involved in developing a modern repertoire for it. In October 2014 she released her debut CD “Kaleidoscope” featuring her own compositions and published a book of original tunes for the clarsach.
In August 2015, Elinor won the prestigious Trophée Harpe Camac at the Festival Interceltique de Lorient.
