Fa­mil­iar face on Alyth stage

Blairgowrie Advertiser - - THE TICKET -

At the Alyth Cre­ates festival this week­end the town will wel­come world-class mu­si­cians with lo­cal links.

Chris Stout and Ca­tri­ona McKay, renowned for their work on the Shet­land fid­dle and harp, play Alyth Parish Church on Satur­day night.

For Chris, Alyth feels like a sec­ond home as his mum is from Wood­side and he used to visit his grand­par­ents there reg­u­larly.

Ca­tri­ona was the 2014 Scots tra­di­tional mu­si­cian of the year and as a duo the pair have re­ceived rave re­views for their per­for­mances of ‘Seavaigers’by Sally Beamish, mak­ing regular ap­pear­ances on BBC ra­dio over the past few months.

Chris was the lead fid­dle player on the sound­track to the movie‘Brave’and he is ex­cited about the re­lease of‘Whisky Ga­lore’, which he also pro­vided the sound­track for.

He said:“My last gig in Alyth was great fun and the au­di­ence was very warm and re­cep­tive so Ca­tri­ona and I are look­ing for­ward to a spe­cial night and to spend­ing time with fam­ily and friends.”

En­try to this one-off concert is £10, £5 for con­ces­sions. Tick­ets will be avail­able at the door.
