Our last House Concert of 2012 is a real stormer – we are delighted to welcome an old friend of Watercolour Music, the legendary piper Fred Morrison, and his award-winning multi-instrumentalist duo partner, Matheu Watson. This is one not to miss, so do join us if you can!
This is one of the most uplifting live experiences you’re ever likely to encounter - truly awesome musicianship. For those of you that don’t know of this duo, Fred has been described as the "Jimi Hendrix of the bagpipes" and Matheu was crowned Instrumentalist of the Year at the 2012 Scots Traditional Music Awards - this gig will be a busy one!
Fred Morrison is one of the world's leading pipers and is a globally renowned composer of music for the bagpipes, known for his unique, powerfully exuberant, virtuosic and highly improvisational style which combines the Gaelic piping tradition of South Uist with contemporary and eclectic influences. One of the few pipers to have achieved success in both the competitive piping and folk music scenes, Morrison is a virtuoso of the Great Highland Bagpipes, the bellows-blown reel pipes, the Irish Uilleann pipes, and the low whistle.
Inverness-born Matheu Watson is one of the UK’s finest young musicians, with an international reputation that has seen him collaborate with a stellar cast of roots musicians, from Zakir Hussain to Tim O’Brien to Salsa Celtica and the Treacherous Orchestra. Fred and Matheu will be playing music from their award-winning blue-grass infused album, Outlands – “ …I heard this Uist-Irish-bluegrass connection in my head, and I knew I could make it work.” Fred Morrison.

Please do pass the info on to anyone you know who might be interested, especially young musicians – it’s a rare opportunity to be able to watch these two guys playing ‘up close and personal’.
Thanks as ever and hope to see you on the 25th!
