Something lovely to watch tonight!Join us on our Facebook page, Thursday 7th May at 8pm, for a premiere of the musical documentary 'Finding Fochabers'
'Finding Fochabers' follows composer and performer Daithí Kearney to the North East of Scotland where he participates at the Celtic music festival Speyfest. It reflects on his engagement as a researcher over a number of fieldtrips with the history and culture of the area and his response through creative arts practice.
This short documentary film highlights the legacy of a local musician and teacher, James Alexander and older fiddle traditions of composer William Marshall, who is buried near Fochabers and includes new instrumental and vocal compositions by Kearney.
Ethnomusicologist, Geographer and Performer, Dr Daithi Kearney is a lecturer in Music and co-director of the Creative Arts Research Centre at Dundalk Institute of Technology. Daithi has toured regularly as a musician, singer and dance and has released albums "Midelton Rare" and "A Louth Lilt"
