Ceòl ’s Craic Host Gaelictronica Evening
On Saturday June 17 in the Centre for Contemporary Arts on Sauchiehall Street, Ceòl ’s Craic’s annual Gaelictronica event will combine Gaelic vocal and instrumental music with cutting-edge electronica to create a unique fusion of traditional, ambient, and dance sounds.
When the doors open at 8pm, the night will begin with a DJ set by Doktor Robert. Three further acts will feature throughout the evening: Whyte, Ela Orleans, and Inyal. Whyte made their debut at the first Gaelictronica event in 2016.
Composer Ross Whyte and vocalist Alasdair Whyte were brought together by Ceòl ’s Craic and commissioned to create experimental treatments of ancient Gaelic songs.
In the intervening months, they have recorded and released their first album – and this appearance will mark the end of their Scottish tour.
Ela Orleans is a Polish composer, multi-instrumentalist and singer who uses synthesisers, guitar, violin and piano to create diverse and multi-layered music. She has performed internationally to great acclaim and famous fans include Thurston Moore, Tim Burgess, David Lynch, Ian Rankin and Steven Pastel.
Inyal are establishing a reputation as a phenomenal live act – layering subtle electronics and twisted beats with intricate fiddle and pipes.
The band started 2017 with a spectacular Celtic Connections show at Glasgow’s Old Fruitmarket and shortly after their appearance at Ceòl ’s Craic they will head north to take to the main stage at this year’s Hebcelt festival. Tickets for this non-seated, over-18s event are £10 and can be obtained by emailing email@example.com.
