Phamie is so pleased to celebrating a work she was commissioned to write by Celtic Connections at the age of 19. Twenty years later to the day, and an epic journey it has been, arriving back again at The Glasgow Royal Concert Hall for Connections 2020, involving the original cast of Alasdair Fraser, Mairi Campbell and new special guests such as Jarlath Henderson and more with Scotland’s National Orchestra (RSNO) is definitely a night Phamie will no doubt always remember. It would be so lovely to see you there too!
Phamie will be using this opportunity to enhance 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, voice with The RSNO feat. original cast of Alasdair Fraser, Mairi Campbell and special guests including Jarlath Henderson and more
