Ross & Ali’s Symbiosis
‘Skilful acoustic instrumental playing is elaborated and developed into bold, funky, adventurous arrangements that sometimes transform into full on Folk Rock, like Treacherous Orchestra on Acid’ – fRoots
Skilfully performed instrumental music deeply rooted in the Scottish tradition. Ross and Ali, two of Scotland’s most prominent musicians, bring together original compositions from their highly acclaimed albums, Symbiosis I and II, ranging from high octane jigs and reels to beautifully melodic slow airs. The music is a masterful blend of the old and the new, mixing in elements of traditional, rock and electronic.
Their arsenal is made up of Bagpipes, whistles, guitars, cittern, drums, and electronics. Modern Scottish folk music at its mightiest!!!!! You’ll be sure to be set alight.
Ross and Ali will be joined by two of Scotland’s finest musicians, Paul Jennings of Croft no 5 fame, and Jenn Butterworth from Kinnaris Quintet.
