The annual TMSA Young Trad Tour brings together the finalists and winner of the BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the year. Showcasing the best young talent Scotland has to offer, this album gives a snapshot of the very best of the current Scottish traditional and folk. It features the finalists and winners from the 2019 competition as well as the winner of the 2018 competition.
The full line up is as follows: Benedict Morris (fiddle and 2019 winner), Sarah Markey (flute), Luc McNally (guitar/voice), Ross Miller (bagpipes), Cameron Ross (fiddle), Catherine Tinney (voice) and Hannah Rarity (voice and 2018 winner).
The album features a mix of original material written by the finalists as well as traditional tunes arranged by the musicians under the guidance of Musical Directors, Findlay Napier & Anna Massie.
Every year the TMSA Young Trad Tour (run by the Traditional Music & Song Association of Scotland) offers young musicians the opportunity to record an album with their contemporaries and tour their home towns. This throws up many musical opportunities for audiences, listeners and the young musicians to enjoy and acts as a launchpad for their careers. The 2019 album is a unique showcase for the talents of these young musicians as well as Scotland’s thriving music scene. For more information visit www.tmsa.org.uk
