las 16

LAS (meaning ignite) are an exciting new five piece, featuring leading players from the contemporary Celtic music scene. They explore Scotland & Ireland’s shared cultural links through exhilarating dance/music collaborations and songs in both Scottish Gàidhlig and Irish.

Featuring an electrifying musical blend of fiddle, button accordion, piano, guitar, whistles and shruti box, they combine lively music numbers with beautifully arranged Scottish Gàidhlig/Irish language songs and Scottish stepdance/sean-nós dance routines. Their musical and vocal prowess, combined with an innate understanding of the traditionally rooted core of the music that they perform, makes them a new force worth experiencing.

All five members of LAS are well established performers in their own right and have played at festivals and venues all over the world. As LAS, they have successfully toured both Scotland and Ireland, in addition to performing at Celtic Connections, Scotland and Féile na Gealaí, Ireland. They are also no stranger to television, with their appearance on this year’s Fleadh TV being watched by over 1/4 million viewers. They also featured on the popular TV series Trad ar Fad on BBC NI,with appearances on Seirm (BBC Alba) and Celtic Connections (TG4) scheduled for later this year.

LAS also launched their self-titled debut EP in April 2017 and the recording features their unique take on the traditional arts in Ireland and Scotland; unifying the two traditions and showcasing the music, song and dance that has influenced and shaped their music over the years.

Rua Macmillan & Suzanne Houston

This Glasgow-based fiddle/piano duo fire out riotous arrangements of music inspired by the range of regional styles across Scotland and beyond. As well as more contemporary tunes, and a few songs, they can’t resist some of the most virtuosic of the older Scottish fiddle repertoire for a bit of craic!

Rua was BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year 2009.

They have worked with agency Live Music Now since 2011, delivering live recitals and workshops acrossScotland for all sectors of the community.

They are planning their debut duo album. Watch this space! For bookings and more information, contact suzanne.scotsmusic@gmail.com
