Greg Lawson & Pete Garnett
Greg Lawson and Pete Garnett, from Moishe's Bagel, perform in their new duo, Caper, playing tunes from around the world. Journey with them from Tajikistan and Azerbaijan through Armenia, Macedonia and Iran, across Europe, round the British Isles and across to the Americas. The duo takes you on a voyage of beautiful, gentle melodies and soundscapes of improvisation telling the stories behind the tunes as well as their own compositions and some Bagel’s favourites. Greg studied at the Royal Northern College and now plays with the likes of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Royal Scottish National Orchestra, rock groups and many others. Pete began playing the accordion, teaching himself by ear, after trying classical piano and not enjoying it. He now plays music for theatre, puppet shows and silent films.
Nordic Fiddlers Bloc
‘The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc’ comprise three master fiddle players from three different and very distinctive Nordic countries/regions. Kevin Henderson (Fiddlers’ Bid, Boys of the Lough’ and ‘Session A9) hails from Shetland; Olav Luksengard Mjelva is an award winning fiddle player from Norway and Anders Hall is an acclaimed exponent of the Swedish fiddle tradition.
Combined as ‘The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc’ they skilfully weave the many components of their three musical cultures and traditions together in a hugely atmospheric and dynamic fashion, all laced through with liberal helpings of humour for good measure.
Any lover of great quality fiddle playing should not miss ‘The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc’ in concert.
"This trio are endlessly varied, powerful and beautiful.....a shimmering display of accurately pitched, highly skilled musical accomplishment" (The Scotsman)
