Virtuoso musicians Simon Thoumire (concertina) and Dave Milligan (piano) made their first album – The Big Day In – in 2001 when they got the opportunity of a spare day in a studio with a piano – hence the title. Since then they have performed throughout the world and on this tour they are promoting their latest album – Portraits. They play a mixture of reels, jigs, strathspeys and airs mainly from the Scottish tradition but some different tunes too. Their version of the classic Freedom Come All Ye live at Celtic Connections festival has had over 1.2million listens on Soundcloud. They are joined in this concert by Internationally acclaimed American pianist Neil Pearlman who is celebrating the release of his first solo piano album, Refractions. Known for bringing fresh ideas to the piano in traditional Scottish music, Neil has collected several melodies from the Gaelic song, bagpipe and fiddle repertoires and reimagined them on the piano.
