Ian Peaston: Violin
One musician, one violin, one laptop - one mind-blowing live performance.
Violin Variations is a unique concert experience with violinist Ian Peaston, who grew up in Cumnock before pursuing a career in classical music in Glasgow, Germany and Sweden.
How can one violin sound like a whole band, seamlessly blending all genres into one? From Bach to fi lm music by Hans Zimmer, trip-hop by Massive Attack and Brazilian electrosamba. Every sound you hear — strings, guitars, drums and bass — is produced from a single violin, and Ian loops together layer upon layer of these sounds until there is a twenty-piece band playing from the speakers, all completely live.
The concert takes place in The Dumfries Arms, where we’re creating a cabaret atmosphere for a performance that has to be heard to be believed.
Festival Club at the Dumfries Arms Hotel afterwards.
