Thorb the Robot (Adam Sutherland)
Rosie Shand of Grantown (Adam Sutherland)
These are the first two tunes from Adam’s debut solo album ‘Squall’ which was released to critical acclaim in 2013. The album is made up entirely of his own stylistic and charming compositions and was recorded live in front of a captive audience in Ullapool in the beautiful North West Highlands of Scotland.
Adam comes from Errogie on the south shores of Loch Ness in the Highlands of Scotland. In his mid thirties, he is one of Scotland’s most exciting fiddle players, recognised internationally as a performer, composer, and teacher.
Outfits that Adam has been part of include The Treacherous Orchestra, Session A9, Peatbog Faeries, Babelfish and Croft No. Five. He has also played with a host of other well known acts including Salsa Celtica and Manran.
Adam’s tunes are perhaps his most impressive legacy and are played in music sessions and in YouTube videos in the following countries: Scotland, England, Ireland, Wales, France, Germany, Itlay, Spain, Norway, USA, Canada (Canadian Celtic Music top-ten with Flook’s version of ‘The Road to Errogie’), Korea, Australia, New Zealand and who knows where else.
Adam is now launching his solo career, performing all his own tunes with his brand n band of superb Scottish musicians.
“Adam’s music is testament to the change that is unfolding within traditional music in Scotland, where innovation and experimentation are breaking down the constraining barriers of old and self expression is absolute. Adam creates music that is free, spiritual and joyful, drawn from influences as diverse as jazzy, classical, European celtic music and the tunes of his native Inverness-shire.
This album (Squall) is colourful, courageous and bold just like the man himself.”
