DONALD BLACK - SCOTTISH CELTIC HARMONICA

Donald Black, “the instrument’s foremost exponent in Scottish Traditional Music” (Scotland on Sunday) is joined by Donnie Mackenzie (acoustic guitar) and Martainn Skene (keyboard/accordion) for a concert as the DONALD BLACK BAND.

Donald hails from Benderloch, Argyll, Scotland. He received his first harmonica (mouthorgan) at the tender age of four. His roots are firmly steeped in the West of Scotland Pipe and Gaelic tradition but his repertoire extends well beyond this to embrace the idioms of Ireland, Shetland Isles, Nova Scotia (Canada) and mainstream Scotland.

Donald is totally self-taught and with his own unique style and mastery, has played a very significant part in the harmonica having been given a new respect and acceptance; meaning aficionados, professionals and reviewers taking it seriously as a significant part of the Scottish Traditional Music scene.

Using mainly the tremolo or 10-hole diatonic harmonica as lead instrument, his live performances of thoroughly challenging  jigs, reels, marches, hornpipes, strathspeys and emotionally charged slow airs/laments have delighted audiences in his native Scotland, as well as England, Italy, Germany, Lithuania, Denmark, Russia and the U.S.A.

Start time 8:00pm (doors open 7:15pm); tickets £12 (under 18s £8).
