Hamish Napier is a Scottish folk multi-instrumentalist and composer inspired by the heritage and nature of his native landscape of Strathspey.

Join us as he performs his award winning album The Woods (Album of the Year at the Scots Trad Music Awards) inspired by the flora and fauna of Scotland’s native forests. Hamish, on wooden flutes and piano, will be joined by Patsy Reid (fiddle/viola) and Innes Watson (guitar).

Hamish’s music is innovative, incorporating sounds from jazz, electronica and classical music, while also celebrating and respecting Scotland’s rich musical heritage. Humorous, engaging and heart-warming, Hamish’s performances are often interdisciplinary, incorporating poems and stories about nature and folklore.

The Woods is album no.3 in his Strathspey Pentalogy – a 5-album exploration and celebration of his homeland, following on from The River and The Railway. He will also share a few of the work-in-progress pieces from forthcoming album no.4!

    ★★★★★ “The Woods is a beautifully constructed, evocative and distinctive album…a splendid and rare treat.”
