Loch Shiel Festival
The West Highlands of Scotland - one of our favourite places in the world. So much natural, rugged beauty and inspiration in the landscape. In 2015, our cellist Duncan was invited to become artistic director of the long-running chamber music festival, Loch Shiel Festival, and we are delighted to be the ongoing associate ensemble. Every year in late April/early May, we travel up to this amazing part of Scotland and perform with friends and mentors on the shores of Loch Shiel, one of Scotland’s longest lochs, close to the coast and the Western Isles.
We have performed alongside some of our favourite musicians here, including David Watkin, Robert Irvine, Tom Hankey, Jackie Shave, Chris Stout and Catriona MacKay, and many more. 2020 promises to be one of the most exciting festivals to date, with a focus on the music of Beethoven, and a celebration of the Year of Scottish Coasts and Waters.
