Adam Sutherland Band

Adam Sutherland Band

Adam Sutherland Band
Fiddler Adam Sutherland is a native of Errogie on the south shores of Loch Ness with a twenty year career behind him, performing in some of Scotland’s best loved bands. Many of these have been festival favourites here at HebCelt, including Treacherous Orchestra, Peatbog Faeries, Session A9 and Salsa Celtica. This year he returns with his own fabulous sextet, featuring some of Scotland’s finest trad musicians.
Adam was named ‘Composer of the Year’ at the 2017 MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards and his tunes can be heard in sessions worldwide, from North America to Japan.

Earlier this year at Celtic Connections Festival he released his second solo record; ‘Some other land’ to critical acclaim. The album is made up of tunes that have been coming to Adam in his sleep. This has involved him waking up in the middle of the night with a head full of feverish new melodies, getting the fiddle out and writing the music down. In his pyjamas.

Expect melodic charisma, reasonably OK humour, and an awesome band: Angus Lyon on box, Marc Clement on Guitar, Hamish Napier on keys, Iain Copeland on drums and James Lindsay on bass.
