Start of the Nae Plans tour in Hamish Napier's hometown.
Adam Sutherland and Hamish Napier
Taking their cue from the spontaneity of the traditional music session, two of our finest folk musicians, Hamish Napier (piano, flute, whistle, vocals) and Adam Sutherland (fiddle), sit down on stage without knowing what they will play. The 'Nae Plans' philosophy leaves no room for rehearsals, set lists or even discussion about the performance until the pair come together on-stage. Their performances bring a crucial part of Scotland's music culture, the informal session, to the to foreground and cast it in a fresh light, bringing its open-endedness and spontaneity onto the concert platform. It makes for a seat-of-the-pants, incredibly exciting experience for both listener and performer, putting the audience at the centre of an energetic, dynamic, electrifying performance which captures the duos' raw creativity and outstanding musical intuition
