The Fire – Official CD Release Concert
August 14, 2018 @ 7:30 pm
The Fire is a high energy pure-drop Scottish music band, with world class fiddling in combination with bagpipes, guitar, bodhran, whistle, and bouzouki. The group includes, International Scottish Fiddle Champion Rebecca Lomnicky, multi-instrumentalist David Brewer of the popular Celtic band Molly’s Revenge, and Adam Hendey on guitar and bouzouki. Members of the trio have each spent copious amounts of time delving into the traditions of their respective instruments, with Rebecca and David having additionally lived and studied in both Edinburgh and the highlands of Scotland. Together, The Fire performs captivating Scottish music which bridges the gap between the fiddle and bagpipe music of Scotland—two worlds united, into a heartfelt and rousing musical experience. Between their entertaining and informative stage banter, vast array of instrument combinations and extensive repertoire, including everything from soaring slow airs to intricately arranged dance tunes, these charismatic performers will leave you on your feet with your hands together.
The Fire will be releasing their new 14 track album, Radiance. The album draws from a variety of Scottish fiddle manuscripts, bagpipe music collections, and the pen of all three band members. Over the last year they have compiled, arranged, and recorded dozens of tunes which range from a scotch-measure published in the first collection of Scottish fiddle tunes in 1700, to a bagpipe anthem, to a medley of contemporary original tunes.
