Easter Treat for traditional music lovers in Elgin

Two of Scotland’s most talented musicians are set to display their talents in Elgin at a special Easter Sunday show.

Former composer of the Year in the Scottish Traditional Music Awards, Mairearad Green, will be on accordion and pipes while past winner of the BBC Radio Scotland Young Musician of the Year award, Anna Massie, will show off her skills on guitar, banjo and fiddle.

The pair will perform at the Drouthy Cobbler in Elgin on Easter Sunday (April 5) from 7.30pm.

A constantly changing lead/accompanist balance and the variety of instruments will provide a rich, varied and highly energetic performance which complements their instantly warm and friendly stage presence.

Based in Glasgow, Mairearad and Anna both grew up in the Highlands in very similar musical backgrounds and share an innate understanding of Scottish culture and music. As a duo they have performed for over ten years and enjoyed many successes becoming a much-loved live act.

They can also be seen individually performing with a number of well-known bands and artists; The Poozies, Blazin’ Fiddles, Bella Hardy, and Box Club, and together they join Scotland’s one and only Celtic Big Band, The Unusual Suspects.

Tickets (£12) are available from The Drouthy Cobbler and from www.thedrouthycobbler.co.uk.
