About Edinburgh International Festival: Martyn Bennett’s ‘Bothy Culture’
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
PERFORMED BY THE GRIT ORCHESTRA & GREG LAWSON
CONTEMPORARY MUSIC LIGHT ON THE SHORE
A unique performance of an epic orchestration of Martyn Bennett’s second album, Bothy Culture. Part of Light on the Shore with Edinburgh Gin Seaside.
Light on the Shore with Edinburgh Gin Seaside travels uptown to the Edinburgh Playhouse for one night to revisit Celtic fusion artist Martyn Bennett’s kaleidoscopically rich 1996 album Bothy Culture in truly epic style, following the huge success of Grit at the 2016 International Festival. Bothy Culture fuses together Islamic and Gaelic cultures, drawing inspiration from Punjabi, Turkish, Scandinavian and Irish music. Composer and violinist Greg Lawson has written another monumental orchestration for The GRIT Orchestra for this vibrant and energetic musical exploration of Scotland’s bothy culture - the network of stone built shelters which can be found on old Drovers’ routes criss-crossing some of the most remote parts of the Scottish Highlands. This performance will carry on in the spirit of Bennett’s love of ‘musical alchemy’, creating new hybrids of ceilidh music, rave and techno culture and traditional folk instrumentation from around the world. Bothy Culture was the centrepiece of the 2018 Celtic Connections Festival.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Edinburgh International Festival: Martyn Bennett’s ‘Bothy Culture’ are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
