This is a rare opportunity to see one of Scotland's folk super-groups featuring a phenomonal line-up of Charlie McKerron (Capercaillie), Adam Sutherland (Peatbog Faeries), Gordon Gunn, Kevin Henderson, Brian MacAlpine and Tim Egey... Named Session A9 because all of the artists originate from points along this road and in a fitting tribute to their heritage, alongside a real desire to bring the music home, the tour will follow the route of the A9 road, targeting less-established venues and town halls. A perfect example of Tune Up's pledge to take high quality music off the beaten track. One of Scotland's foremost traditional/fiddle groups, Session A9 will play from their second album Bottlenecks and Armbreakers - presenting original compositions from the band themselves alongside a couple of stunning compositions from the late Gordon Duncan and tunes from new talent emerging from Scotland. Live shows have earned the Session A9 musicians the title "Scotland's Supergroup" so be sure not to miss them as they tour the CD for the first time in June, hitting up a host of venues from their hometowns up and down the A9 usually neglected on traditional touring networks.
