Roo & Neil
Based in Glasgow, their compositions are inspired by landscape, people and by the ways in which music can evoke a sense of place and community.
In May 2022, Roo and Neil toured Scotland to release their debut album, HOMELANDS – a suite of pieces exploring their people and places which feel like ‘home’. The works took five years to write and record and last just under an hour in length. During the first Covid-19 lockdown, one piece from this collection was selected a winner of Feis Rois’ “In Tune with Nature” competition. It was remotely composed, recorded and filmed to celebrate the wildlife and landscape of the magical Taynish National Nature Reserve. The duo are quickly gaining recognition and in 2021 were selected by Celtic Connection’s prestigious ‘Danny Kyle Award’ and offered a performance at next year’s festival.
Lucie Hendy Trio
Lucie Hendry released her debut album, Land of Eden, in June 2023, followed by a release tour in Denmark including shows at Godtfolk Festival, Copenhagen Jazz Festival and Aarhus Jazz Festival. The release tour continues in Scotland this October where she will be touring with the Lucie Hendry Trio across the country. The trio is a unique collaboration between Scottish folk harpist, Lucie Hendry and two of Denmark’s upcoming jazz musicians, Dennis Iversen on electric guitar and Christoffer Skovhus on drums.
