Organised by SMG tutors Luisa Brown & Darragh Quinn, nine exceptional traditional musicians from across Europe bring a one-off musical experiment to Edinburgh Botanic Gardens on 7 April, 2018
Meeting for the first time ever, The Schoolhouse Sessions project brings together 9 accomplished young musicians from 7 corners of Europe to experiment with their own musical traditions and create a new sound in just 5 days. The sonic results will be presented in a one-off concert at Inverleith House, Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh. Hailing from Cyprus, Sweden, France, Scotland, Croatia, Ireland and Galicia; the influences of the band are diverse. They aim to transcend cultural, musical and language boundaries to create a unique blend of their talents and strengths and a compelling, fresh sound.
