7:30PM - 10:00PM

An artist of myriad musical passions and polymath virtuosity, Scottish-born guitarist, composer, improviser and ensemble leader Simon Thacker believes that, “Ancient classical, folk and spiritual forms. . . inspire as examples of how musical ideas and genres gestate, mutate and gain layers of cultural wealth.” 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.

Brand-new Scottish/Indian project Naad-hara features 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 tablas.
