Menuhin Centenary Series – Wildings trio

April 27, 2016 in by mwhiteside


Event Details


The New York-born violinist Yehudi Menuhin may be remembered best as a musician, but he was also a dedicated human rights activist and founder of the music charity Live Music Now.
Branches of Live Music Now around the world will be remembering the man and his extraordinary legacy this year, as 2016 marks the centenary of his birth.
Live Music Now Scotland will be hosting 3 concerts in Edinburgh, where emerging artists will play specially commissioned new pieces to celebrate Menuhin’s centenary. This third concert will be performed by the Wildings trio.
Wildings is a band based in Glasgow, hailing from the far-flung corners of Orkney, Skye and Northumberland. Jennifer Austin (piano), FionaMacAskill (fiddle) and Sarah Hayes (flute, singing) blend diverse repertoires and striking new compositions with sparky, intuitive playing.
Wildings will perform The Bellany Suite, their response to the work of John Bellany co-commissioned with the National Galleries of Scotland. It is a musical reflection, through dance forms and meditative music, on Bellany’s work, created jointly by the three composer/performers.

We’d love to see you there for some live music and a glass of wine!
