Familiar face on Alyth stage
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.
