Calum Stewart (wooden flute) and Lauren MacColl (fiddle & viola) are two young musicians, at the top of their game. Calum, formerly of Manran, is at the forefront of Scottish flute playing, displaying exemplary technique and emotion in his playing.
Lauren, is regarded as one of the finest fiddlers of her geneation and has won “Instumentalist of the Year” at the Scottish Traditional Music Awards and BBC Young Folk Awards. She has also been leading her band The MacCollective since 2004.
On this, their first “duo album”, Lauren uses various tunings to create different resonances with Calum’s flute playing and the material is sourced from old manuscripts and their own writing.
