Folk and classical meet and mingle in this intimate performance by visionary Finnish multi-musician Pekka Kuusisto and his friend and colleague, US neo-folk singer/songwriter Sam Amidon, with musicians from the Scottish Chamber Orchestra. Experience Kuusisto and Amidon’s remarkable musical partnership up close, following their orchestral concert with the full forces of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra.

John Adams’s Shaker Loops is a mesmerising minimalist classic, drawing together looping melodies and the ecstatic praise of American Shaker worship in all engulfing waves of sound. There’s a very different perspective on music and faith in the timeless community hymns that Sam Amidon absorbed from his childhood in Vermont, now reinterpreted for listeners of all beliefs – or none – in the 21st century.
