Photos from Saturday night of the Northern Roots Festival at The One Touch Theatre – Eden Court. 31.5.14.

Northern Roots Radio takes to the airwaves again for a sold out show at Eden Court’s One Touch Theatre. This evening we have possibly the best house band ever – with the like of Anna Massie, Angus Lyon, Mike Vass and Greg Barry. Feis Ross is well represented and a few more seats were added to the stage to accommodate the Inverness Gaelic Choir.

All of this was wrapped seamlessly around the three wonderful singer-songwriter talents of Adam Holmes, Rachel Sermanni and Aoife O’Donovan. In an evening of solos, duets, trios and cameos there were some exquisite moments among what was essentially a series of highlights. Standing ovation please!

Life-long engagement with music and a truly eclectic taste (although prog-rock and metal will usually have me scrambling for the off button). If pushed, I would have to say the Velvet Underground are one of the most important band’s of all time. Although I consider myself first and foremost a photographer, as regards reviewing I guess I cut my teeth in the vibrant fanzine scene of the 80’s. Around the same time I started taking photographs and, to be brief, performance and photography were made for each other: perfect match.
