Taking their cue from the spontaneity of the traditional music session, two of Scotland’s 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 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 and engaging performance which captures the duo’s raw creativity and outstanding musical intuition.
With a no fear attitude to the evolution of traditional music, Hamish and Adam blend a mixture of self-penned music and song with the traditional, interwoven with engaging stories. Every performance is unique demonstrating the incredible talent of two of Scotland’s foremost musicians, from Hamish’s eloquent singing and soulful keyboards to Adam’s trademark melodic touch and gift for groove.
