ACT OF THE DAY
Led by Dr Gemma McGregor, the Orkney Heritage Fiddle Project seeks to research and preserve Orkney music and playing styles, whilst also shining a spotlight on some of the county’s most prolific figures within traditional music. Since 2010, the project has focused on the work of Jim Craigie, Davy Eunson, Ronnie Aim, Allie Windwick, Gordon Harvey, the Garson Trio, Jackie Sinclair, and in 2017 explored connections with Norway. At Thursday night’s Burray concert, the attention will turn to Willie Sinclair, of Braeland, Burray [1912-1998], whose style of playing is continued by many fiddlers today, including Douglas Montgomery - who will perform alongside Gemma McGregor and David Linklater.
