An evening of Indian-influenced music from Celtic Connections 2020
Simon Thacker is an artist of myriad musical passions and polymath virtuosity: a guitarist, composer, improviser and ensemble leader. Here, he explores and reimagines north Indian folk-song traditions, with young Punjabi/Sufi/Bollywood star Afsana Khan, Grammy-winning tabla master Sukhvinder Singh "Pinky" and violinist Jackie Shave, leader of the Britten Sinfonia.
Sharing the bill is brand-new Scottish/Indian project Naad-hara featuring Lewis singer Mischa Macpherson and Hyderabad’s Ankna Arockiam, exploring their respective traditions together with award-winning Snuffbox fiddler/bassist Charlie Stewart, pianist Alistair Iain Paterson and Glasgow-born Hardeep Deerhe (Sodhi) on tabla.
