DAVID BREWER and ADAM HENDEY feature night!
(rumors of mysterious special guests…)
Bringing together high-energy bagpiping and dynamic accompaniment, multi-instrumentalists Adam Hendey and David Brewer join forces to present an inspiring tour de force of traditional and contemporary Celtic music.
Having both lived and studied in Scotland, Hendey and Brewer draw from a vast repertoire of traditional tunes and original compositions – including soft slow airs, exuberant jigs, roaring reels, and more.
The duo’s delicately arranged harmonies and dazzling instrumental virtuosity combine to give commanding performances that will captivate audiences with spirited displays of Scottish and world folk music.
