Celebrated South Korean-born cellist Su-a Lee draws on her 30 years of musical experience in her stunning debut album Dialogues. Continually reaching beyond the classical genre, the top-class chamber musician has worked with exceptional world music artists and is highly sought after for her distinctive sound, expression and willingness to explore.Dialogues are a series of musical conversations. For this very special show, Su-a Lee will be joined by three stellar collaborators from her album – Duncan Chisholm, Donald Shaw and Hamish Napier Music.

Festival regular Duncan Chisholm is one of Scotland’s most accomplished fiddlers. Donald Shaw is a celebrated multi-instrumentalist/composer/producer and one of the founding members of Capercaillie. Hamish Napier Music is a producer, tunesmith and multi-faceted performer from Grantown-on-Spey.

The first half of our concert marks the culmination of our musicians-in-residence and international collaboration between Dopey Monkey (Moray) and Jean Luc Thomas and Gab Fraure (Brittany), who together form Oonchancy. Their set sees the musicians playing tunes from their respective repertoires and cultural traditions along with collaborative pieces resulting from their residency exchange.

Expect an evening of traditional and not-so-traditional tunes.

    "With such divergent talent to call upon, it’s like dining off a menu created jointly by a crack team of master chefs, each with their own distinctive cuisine"

    "You can’t listen and not be enveloped and stirred by the magnificently played assemblage of musical partnerships on offer."
