Lunchtime Recital on 5th September with Graham Rorie & Aidan Moodie

Graham Rorie, fiddle & mandolin, and Aidan Moodie, vocal and guitar, are two of the most promising young musicians to recently emerge from Orkney’s rich heritage of traditional music.

With a presence that’s both familiar and forward-thinking, Graham and Aidan’s playful arrangements are brought to life by a musical relationship almost a decade in the making. The pair perform traditional tunes (both from “up home” in Orkney and further afield), self-penned numbers, and contemporary folk songs through an intimate combination of fiddle, guitar, mandolin, and voice.

In 2015, the boys won a coveted Danny Kyle Award at Celtic Connections, also reaching the semi-finals of the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award the following year. Following this, they went on to form the four-piece folk band Gnoss – recently nominated for an MG Alba “Up And Coming” award at the 2017 Trad Awards.

“Aidan and Graham are superb musicians, not only that, they combine as a superb duo.” Folk Radio UK

The recital starts at 1,15pm, admission is free, donations for the excellent work of Live Music Now welcome!
