Graham MacKenzie, Mike McGoldrick and Innes Watson

July 8, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Staffin Hall

Described by Donald Shaw as “An amazing new talent in fiddle playing and composition”, award-winning Inverness musician Graham MacKenzie takes to the stage at Talla Stafainn for an intimate concert with Capercaillie’s Mike McGoldrick and Peatbog Faeries’ Innes Watson.

The trio come to Skye as part of Graham’s North of Scotland tour to launch his second album The Dawning. The album is inspired by the beauty of the Scottish landscape, and showcases influences from Scottish, Irish and Cape Breton styles of fiddle playing. It combines self-penned tunes with music Graham has played throughout his career that has shaped him as a musician.

Mike McGoldrick (flute, pipes, whistle) has been defined as one of the most vital and inventive musicians in today’s British Isles folk renaissance. A co-founder of best-selling Irish instrumental outfit Lunasa and current member of Celtic favorites Capercaillie, Mike has played a great part in expanding the audience for British Isles instrumental music. In more recent years he has performed around the globe in ex-Dire Straits legend Mark Knopfler’s band – including a tour with both Knopfler and Bob Dylan.

Man of many talents, Innes Watson (guitar, fiddle, voice), is an award-winning multi-instrumentalist and the newest member of the Peatbog Faeries. Innes is much in demand as a musician and music teacher and a prolific songwriter. Originally from the Borders, Innes moved to Glasgow where he became an integral member of the Scots trad community there, appearing in over 42 albums and working with the most notworthy performers in the country. He now lives on the Isle of Skye.
