Bothy Culture & Beyond; a music-vision-dance-bike spectacular featuring The GRIT Orchestra & guests with special appearance by Danny MacAskill.
A spectacular and unique celebration of musician and producer Martyn Bennett that will feature global cycling sensation Danny McAskill performing to a soundtrack from the re-formed GRIT Orchestra will help celebrate Celtic Connections’ 25th Anniversary in 2018.
The epic production, being staged at The SSE Hydro on Saturday 27 January, will feature the world premiere of the orchestration of Martyn Bennett’s second album Bothy Culture by violinist and composer Greg Lawson.
It will include a section featuring professional street trials rider Danny MacAskill as inspired by his short film The Ridge, in which he returns to his native home of the Isle of Skye for an action packed ride along the notorious Cuillin Ridge, set to the soundtrack of Martyn Bennett’s Blackbird.
The GRIT Orchestra performed one of the most memorable and moving opening nights of Celtic Connections’ entire 25 year history when they performed GRIT, Martyn Bennett’s final album, in 2015 to mark the 10th anniversary of his death.
