Lauren MacColl: The Seer

About Lauren MacColl: The Seer

Commissioned by Highland arts organisation Fèis Rois and premiered at Celtic Connections, ‘The Seer’ is a 45-min suite of new music based on the life and prophecies of 17th Century prophet, The Brahan Seer.

Growing up on the Black Isle, acclaimed fiddler and composer Lauren MacColl has long been immersed in the tales of this ‘Highland Nostradamus’, stories deeply imbedded in the aural culture of the north. Drawing on inspiration from place, people and with a notably dark undercurrent, Lauren’s music is accompanied by images from artist Somhairle MacDonald. The accompanying album was shortlisted for both Album of the Year and Composer of the Year at the Scots Trad Music Awards. Joining Lauren to present 'The Seer' - and a first half of brand new music - are folk luminaries Mairearad Green (The Poozies), Rachel Newton (The Shee), Anna Massie (Blazin’ Fiddles), Megan Henderson (Breabach) and Signy Jakobsdottir.

Presented by The Queen's Hall and Soundhouse and supported by Creative Scotland

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Lauren MacColl: The Seer are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
