As part of the Young Music Makers programme Lyth Arts Centre would like to offer a ‘come and try’ session with musician Morag Currie. Morag Currie is a violist, fiddler, composer and community musician from Thurso. She currently divides her time between Caithness and Paisley, and performs in a diverse range of genres and ensembles, from traditional Scottish and Classical to contemporary.
She has worked as a session player with Biffy Clyro and Frightened Rabbit, is the regular violist with contemporary music specialists, The Auricle Ensemble and is an active freelance violist and fiddler. Morag’s own works are rooted in folk music, but also make use of electronics, digital workstations and sampled sounds. Her first major work, The Idea of North, was performed at the 2020 Celtic Connections festival, and in 2021 she was appointed Environment Artist in Residence with Lyth Arts.
