Scott Lygate The Barony A Frame (second performance)
John Kenny Salt Road - UK Premiere in Cumnock
Our artists in residence this year are the ensembles Headspace and Pandora’s Box, both centring around the amazing trombonist John Kenny. With six performers and live electronics the musicians present a mixture of new and old, ranging from the 13th century to the present day. This year’s Cumnock Tryst commission is for a brand new piece from the young multi-talented composer/ instrumentalist Scott Lygate who originally comes from Irvine.
Scott has based his new piece on The Barony A Frame, which is a monumental structure from our mining past, situated between Auchinleck and Ochiltree.
Performed twice in this concert, the new work promises to be a powerful sonic exploration of our coal mining culture, which will resonate with locals and visitors alike.
