TMSA Young Trad Tour Concert
In February this year six of the best young musicians in Scotland competed in the BBC Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year awards, held at the City Halls, Glasgow. This was the culmination of months of auditions and heats to narrow down the breadth of Scotland's musical talent to six worthy finalists.
The televised final involved all six finalists showcasing their talent by performing their own arrangements within a timeframe of 15 -18 minutes. The competition between all six finalists was extremely close with the judges finally voting Robyn Stapleton from Stranraer as the 2014 winner. Also within the group of finalists was Neil Ewart from Kilchoan who impressed with his fiddle playing.
Off the back of the final the 2014 Tour is now underway and involves visiting the home locations of all this year's finalists, and we are fortunate to be welcoming such talent to Kilchoan. The group is also pleased to have with them last year's winning finalist Paddy Callaghan.
The list of finalists were as follows:
Mhairi Marwick - Fiddle (Fochabers)
Alistair Iain Paterson - Piano (Bishopton)
Ian Smith - Accordian (Tiree)
Robyn Stapleton - Scots song (Stranraer)
Jack Badcock - Guitar, Song (Edinburgh)
Neil Ewart - Fiddle (Kilchoan)
We hope you can join us for what will be a great evening of musical entertainment.
Concert to be held at Kilchoan Community Centre.
Monday 6th October at 8pm.
