Award winning clarsach player, joined by seven of Scotland’s finest musicians, in a new composition.

A musical soundscape of whisky making, from sowing barley to the taste of the amber gold in a glass. Combining traditional and classical styles, with tonal and atonal writing.

Ailie wrote a short piece based on whisky for the Distil composers showcase and in 2010 was delighted to receive a grant from Creative Scotland to write a suite of music for a traditional ensemble, expanding the previous work.

Ailie Robertson (harp), Fraser Fifield (saxophone, whistle), Patsy Reid (fiddle), Adam Sutherland (fiddle), James Ross (piano), Tom Oakes (guitar), Conrad Molleson (bass), Mattie Foulds (percussion).
