This was a fantastic gig. Lovely, evocative music. Premièred to rave reviews as a New Voices commission at Celtic Connections 2007, Irish flautist and singer Nuala Kennedy’s Astar is a musical evocation of her extensive travels over the years, the sounds she’s absorbed and the diverse kindred spirits she’s encountered. With a nine-piece line-up including Bonnie Prince Billy, fiddler/trumpeter Daniel Lapp, bassist Euan Burton and pianist Brian Macalpine, the show also featured visual projections by Edinburgh filmmaker Ruth Barrie.
It was a great opportunity for some more music photography mayhem. This is what the concert looked like.
