Aiseag (The Ferryboat) is a brand-new composition inspired by the small but vital ferry services at the heart of communities in the Highlands and Nova Scotia and by the strong connections between the two places that flourish today.

The project brings together some fifty five musicians from the traditional, classical and electronica world including Canadian fiddle star Colin Grant,the award-winning Inverness Gaelic Choir and the strings of the Scottish Festival Orchestra.

Aiseag is performed on August the First at the Eden Court Theatre, Inverness.
