We asked Inge of Inge Thomson the following questions.
Tell us about yourself
I have been a professional musician, composer, producer for 25 years. Much of my work over the past decade has been collaborative, affording new experiences and forming rich musical relationships. I produce albums for myself and other artists, write music for screen and radio and perform live in a variety of guises.
Why are you involved in Scottish music?
There's so much going on in Scotland today. The Trad/Folk scene is just the most supportive community of like minded people and there's space to explore and expand.
Any particular career highlights?
They are all highlights, I love my job! I love having the opportunity to travel with the music from singing in a carved out monastic cave in Armenia to playing in a far flung village hall in Skye – all amazing experiences. Singing karaoke with the KPT in a wee Welsh backwater pub is a hard one to beat though.
What are your plans for the future?
I'm producing some new work for HenHoose. I'm working on a Tectonics commission for their festival in 2023 and there are two new writing collaborations in the pipeline so plenty to do!
