Lodge Stage, Lodge Grounds
Likened to Kate Bush, Anna Meredith and Bjork, Esther Swift combines her love of folk, jazz, classical and all things in between in this exciting performance, commissioned for Celtic Connections. Masterful instrumentalists Emma Lloyd (viola, violin), Patrick Kenny (trombone and alphorn), Esther Swift (harp and voice) and Owen Williams (multiple percussion and drums) share the stage with electronic musician Matthew Collings to explore intimate and epic soundscapes through rich harmonies, flowering textures, improvisations and pre-sampled soundscapes. Featuring settings of poems by Rachel McCrum, William Butler Yeats and Glasgow’s own Edwin Morgan.
“a wondrous blend of folk and electronica in a sold-out amphitheatre.” ★★★★★ Edinburgh Reporter
