A unique performance of an epic orchestration of Martyn Bennett’s second album, Bothy Culture. Part of Light on the Shore with Edinburgh Gin Seaside.
A unique performance of an epic orchestration of Martyn Bennett’s second album, Bothy Culture, by violinist and composer Greg Lawson. Bothy Culture is Bennett’s second studio album and, many believe, his most accomplished. The work builds upon his unique talent for weaving Scottish Celtic music, international folk music styles and contemporary electronic music.
The GRIT Orchestra gave one of the most memorable performances of the 2016 International Festival with their interpretation of GRIT, Martyn Bennett’s final album marking the 10th anniversary of his death. Both GRIT and Bothy Culture and Beyond were centrepieces of Glasgow’s hugely influential Celtic Connections Festival.
Performance times for this event are approximate and may be subject to change. Full details for this event will be announced on 2 May alongside the full line-up of artists performing as part of Light on The Shore with Edinburgh Gin Seaside. Tickets go on sale from 4 May 2018.
Please note: due to the scale of the ensemble, Bothy Culture will be performed at Edinburgh Playhouse and not at the Leith Theatre.
