Phamie is so pleased to be celebrating a work she was commissioned to write by Celtic Connections at the age of 19. Twenty years later to the day, Phamie will be performing Lammwnmuir at The Glasgow Royal Concert Hall with some of the original cast, such as Alasdair Fraser, Mairi Campbell but this time she will be joined by the Royal Scotish National Orchestra (RSNO) and new special guest Jarlath Henderson. It would be so lovely to see you there too!
Phamie will be using this opportunity to promote a new tree planting campaign on the Lammermuir hills as an act of combatting climate change. We will let you know more about this later, but if you’re keen to get involved, please do be in touch.
Meantime, tickets for this performance can be bought directly from my own site or the Celtic Connections site itself at:
Here is some info on the work itself.
Written in 2000 by Scottish composer Phamie Gow at the age of 19, ‘Lammermuir’ gained her International acclaim. ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) termed Phamie ‘a young prodigy’ whose ‘hauntingly evocative pieces sound like glorious traditional airs that somehow remained hidden until now.’ Since then, Phamie has released 9 albums, with the last one reaching over 10M listeners within the first year. She has performed in major concert halls around the world including The Carnegie Hall in NYC and worked with top calibre artists such as Philip Glass, Ashley MacIsaac and Carlos Nuñez etc. This is an exciting new symphonic collaboration between Phamie on clarsach, piano and voice with The RSNO.
