Scottish composer Craig Armstrong is best known for his film work such as Moulin Rouge and The Great Gatsby alongside his classical works and solo albums, but his interest in the Gaelic Psalm tradition has now led to the creation of a very special new piece of work which will be premiered in An Lanntair, Stornoway on the Island of Lewis this Saturday, 27 August.
The piece of music, entitled Ballantyne, is a collaboration with local musician and composer Calum Martin, and will close a concert celebrating the spiritual music of the Islands. The evening will also feature Duncan Chisholm, members of the Scottish Ensemble, local cellist Neil Johnstone, and a host of psalm singers from throughout Lewis and Harris.
Full Box Office details for this event are available via the An Lanntair website by clicking here.
Enjoy the music….
