JASON SINGH & ANNE MARTIN WITH JOE HARRISON | HANNA TUULIKKI | HECTOR MACINNES & PHILLIPA THOMAS | LEIGHTON JONES & MARIE CLAIRE BREEN | EWEN ZUCKERT

On New Year’s Day ATLAS Arts will present Blue Skye:Land at one of Edinburgh’s most resplendent buildings as part of Scot:Lands, a series of events across Edinburgh’s Old Town that celebrate the start of 2016 with the very best in music, art and theatre.

Gaelic singer, Anne Martin, and vocal sculptor, Jason Singh, will headline an afternoon of Gaelic song, Indian Raga, electronica and beat-boxing woven into a unique soundscape. This event follows a three-week research trip to India in which the pair explored the vocal similarity between Gaelic and Indian working songs. For this special event, Anne and Jason will perform new material that was written and recorded in India.

Alongside this will be an extraordinary intervention by acclaimed artist and composer, Hanna Tuulikki, and special performances by Leighton Jones and Hector MacInnes, recipients of Skye and Lochalsh’s Talent Development Award 2015.

This is a one-off event not to be missed!
