One Hundred Days Away
Two new albums
ARIA nominated 2020
A little note on Scottish-Australian music...
Our two 2019 album releases have explored historical Scottish-Australian music from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. The inspiration to dive into this repertoire came from the desire, as period instrumentalists and singers, to know more about our own historical music traditions here in Australia. Shane Lestideau, Artistic Director of the ensemble, is studying Scottish-Australian music manuscripts and collections for her PhD and has brought her own research to the ensemble's programming. The most surprising and exciting parts of these creative expeditions through Australia's past have sometimes been, in fact, not musical at all. They have been the profound reconnection to family and place, people and land...to our own personal stories as Australians.
Like most groups around the world we've had to put our performances on hold due to COVID-19. Keep an eye on the website for updates regarding online and outdoor concerts later this year, and fingers crossed we can see you live on stage in 2021!
