The Small Halls Festival on the Isle of Skye stands alone in Scotland for its approach to performances and the way it integrates both community and artists. I was very happy indeed to have been invited up in November 2019 to do some live podcasting. This was a real treat for me, as I had the chance to pick the brains of some of my favourite musicians, inviting them to share some of their unique life experiences as well as their exceptional musical skills - all in front of a rapt local audience.
The first of these special Small Halls Festival podcasts features two very well known faces - nationally and internationally - on the classical and traditional music scenes.
Virtuoso cellist Su-a Lee and accordionist / composer Donald Shaw were utterly delightful company, and it was a joy to hear some of their tales and music.
