Taking its name from the Gaelic word for rainbow, this showcase concert is the culmination of a 2018 project for Scottish LGBT+ folk musicians, aimed at creating new work from their personal stories and community perspective. As well as chief organiser Pedro Cameron – former fiddler with The Dirty Beggars, now going solo as Man of the Minch – the workshop leaders were singers/songwriters Rachel Sermanni and Josie Duncan, fiddler Laura Wilkie, and accordionist Grant MacFarlane and multi-instrumentalist Marit Fält. Performances here will feature both tutors and participants, with guest appearances by Kim Carnie, Anna Massie, Joseph Peach, Alistair Iain Paterson, Christian Gamauf, Eddie Seaman and Finn Anderson, and a short film chronicling the project.
Supported by Creative Scotland and Outspoken Arts Scotland the project aims give a platform and voice to the LGBT+ community in the traditional and folk music scene in Scotland.
You can also catch the tutors in conversation on Saturday 2 February.
