The first of this year's ever-popular Blackwell events in partnership with Lakeland Arts Trust. Andrew Dunlop is well known to LDSM audiences as a piano accompanist (and duo partner – see Friday) but today we see another side to his musical talents: he is equally adept in traditional music from his native Scotland, and this afternoon we mark the 150th anniversary of the birth of Blackwell's architect Baillie Scott (1865-1945) with a programme in which Andrew is joined by his sister Joy, a celebrated Gaelic singer.

Present your Blackwell concert ticket at the Arts & Crafts House ticket desk after 2pm and get £1 off the admission price to the House.

Joy Dunlop

Joy Dunlop is one of today’s foremost Scottish Gaelic singers. A vocalist renowned for her ability to breathe freshness into the most traditional material, Joy translates ancient Gaelic musical traditions into the twenty-first century with elegance and grace. The emotional power of her singing needs no translation, speaking to audiences across the divides of language and history in a voice as luminous and compelling as the landscapes of her native Argyll.

Andrew Dunlop

Equally at home in chamber music, song, and solo recitals, Andrew Dunlop is a versatile musician who has performed across the UK, Ireland, USA, Canada, Switzerland and New Zealand. He received his Doctorate from the Eastman School of Music in New York, where he studied as a Fulbright Scholar under the guidance of Barry Snyder.
