In a very crowded field, Adam Sutherland (Treacherous Orchestra/Nae Plans/Session A9/Croft No 5) is one of Scotland’s most singularly gifted fiddlers.
Entering a new phase of creativity, Adam is launching his much awaited second album at Celtic Connections 2018. As with his first album Squall, acclaimed for novelty and experimentation, all tunes are self-penned and in this case mostly gleaned from dreams.
Widely recognised for his high energy, captivating performances, Adam has drawn together a genre-spanning quintet to showcase his all-new original compositions. Solidly under-pinned by John Paul Spiers and Iain Copeland on bass and drums, Adam's melodies are aided in texture and shape by John Somerville's accordion, Marc Clement on guitar and Hamish Napier on keys.
Winner of Composer of the Year at the Scots Trad Awards 2017 and never afraid to wear his influences on his sleeve, Sutherland's unique arrangements range from frenetic Scottish reels, through early 20th century jazz shapes to subtly Balkan diversions. This six-piece combine to deliver an evening of musicality that ranges from heart-warming to heart-rending, spine-tingling to spellbinding. Energy, inventiveness and craft combine to offer sonic joy.
