Celtic Connections s2018e01
Titre original : Bothy Culture and Beyond
Julie Fowlis presents a unique music event and one of the highlights of Celtic Connections 2018. Taking its inspiration from the groundbreaking Martyn Bennett album Bothy Culture, Bothy Culture and Beyond is a musical and visual spectacular combining some of the finest musicians in the country alongside performers such as the internationally renowned street trials rider Danny MacAskill.
The concert is performed by the groundbreaking GRIT Orchestra, originally created by musician, arranger and conductor Greg Lawson to perform Martyn Bennett's GRIT album at Celtic Connections in 2015. Following GRIT's huge success, this year's Bothy Culture and Beyond event sees the world premiere of Greg Lawson's arrangements of Martyn Bennett's second album, Bothy Culture.
Alongside this unique musical performance, the show features a special appearance by Scottish stunt rider Danny MacAskill, inspired by his 2014 film The Ridge, which follows his death-defying, world-first traverse of the Black Cuillin Ridge on his native Skye, soundtracked by Bennett's inspirational track 'Blackbird'.
Also featured during the performance will be beautiful aerial dances from Scotland's leading aerial dance company, All or Nothing.
