Anne Martin and Jason Singh with ‘Roots’

A World Premier. A Gaelic-Indian commission for Hull’s City of Culture. Fresh from its launch in Hull’s City of Culture programme and on its way to London’s Southbank, tonight’s show is a remarkable coup for SEALL with which to launch the Skye Festival.

Anne Martin, Gaelic singer, was born and brought up in Trotternish on the Isle of Skye. She learned her tradition from older neighbours and relatives and has been singing and researching Gaelic song since childhood.

She recently received a PRS biennial award to produce the short piece ‘Ceumannan’ (steps, strides) working with vocal sculptor Jason Singh, for the Hull City of Culture programme. Then as part of an ATLAS Arts project on Skye, Anne and Jason visited India, researching Jason’s background, to complement Anne’s understanding of her own roots. They created a layering of contemporary music for Anne’s traditional Gaelic song and collaborated with well known Indian musicians Sharat Chandra Srivastava and Gyan Singh.

Out of this has grown ‘Roots’ which tonight receives its World Premier on Skye
