Celtic Connections

The latest exciting evolution in an ongoing collaboration between Shetland fiddler Chris Stout, Glasgow piper Finlay MacDonald and the ScottishPower Pipe Band (as featured in Celtic Connections’ 2013 opening concert), The Cauld Wind Blaws Big expands the musical canvas to place all four of Scotland’s national instruments – bagpipes, fiddle, clarsach and voice – firmly in the foreground. They’ll be heard in all their diverse guises and glories from ancient to modern, exquisitely pared-down to resplendently en masse, with other instrumental and vocal soloists including Catriona McKay, Siobhan Miller and Darren Maclean, and a star-studded folk/orchestral string ensemble completing the line-up.
