Join us at the Inverness Acoustic Music Club on Wednesday, 6 March 2024, for a doubleheader concert of mesmerising music with acclaimed Highland musicians Ciorstaidh Chaimbeul and Liam Ross at The Wee Bar, Inverness, 7:30 pm.
Ciorstaidh Chaimbeul was brought up on the Isle of Skye surrounded by Gaelic song, music and culture. Her music is largely influenced by her Gaelic roots as well as extensive classical training. Ciorstaidh is a graduate of the BMus course at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland where she studied with distinguished Serbian accordionist, Djordje Gajic. In 2021, Ciorstaidh went on exchange studies to the Royal Danish Academy of Music where she studied with Geir Draugsvoll and Bjarke Mogensen. In 2019, she was a semi-finalist in the BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year, and NAAFC overall senior accordion winner. She regularly performs at festivals throughout the UK, playing at Hidden Doors with Trio RCS and at RCS Plug Festival with six accordions.
Liam is one of the foremost fingerstyle guitarists in the Scottish Highlands. His unique approach to guitar and live performance ensures he always captivates and engages a wide range of audiences. He seamlessly blends his humour, emotion and commanding stage presence through his songs and classic covers which showcase his lighting-fast, fingerpicking style. This was seen in performances at Celtic Connections, Romania, Belladrum as well as sell-out Under Canvas performances at Eden Court. His influences include Mark Knopfler, Duncan Chisholm, Nickel Creek and Runrig. He was also recently the Musician In Residence for the Fèis Rois and Dandelion Unexpected Garden in Alness.

Join us at the Inverness Acoustic Music Club on Wednesday, 3 April 2024, for a double-header concert of mesmerising music and song with acclaimed Highland musicians Peter MacPherson and Teya-Jean Bawden at The Wee Bar, Inverness, 7:30 pm.
Peter MacPherson is a Scottish singer-songwriter and pianist based in Inverness. Having graduated from the University of Aberdeen with a degree in music, Peter went on to study Gaelic language and song at Sabhal Mòr Ostaig on the Isle of Skye. In 2021, Peter won the Royal National Mod Silver pendant for Gaelic singing and the following year was a semi-finalist in the BBC Young Traditional Musician of the Year. His vocal delivery and piano playing are hugely appealing and garnering interest from audiences across Scotland and online.
Teya-Jean Bawden is a singer-songwriter from the Highlands. Nurtured by the Fèisean movement, Teya-Jean grew up on the trad scene before finding her sound in folk and indie music. In 2023 she was named by BBC Radio 3 as one of ten ‘Inspirational Women Using Music to Changes Lives’ for her work on the Fèis Rois Lullaby Project. She has previously supported The Blue Rose Code and The Little Unsaid, and has featured twice for Sofar Sounds Inverness. Teya-Jean is known for her finger-style playing coupled with lyrical musings on love, life and the careening in between.
