Elsa Jean McTaggart: Hebridean Fire at theSpace @ Surgeons Hall - Theatre 1 is a new musical project from Elsa Jean McTaggart, Mr Lister, Miss Irenie Rose (Elsa’s sister), and today, extra vocals from Jim Archibald.

How best to describe the show?  Well, an informal musical gathering with friends and family…the sort of gathering that is so traditional, and so essential to traditional music.  There is a genuine warmth to “Hebridean Fire” as the show weaves in and out of original songs by Elsa and traditional songs and music.

With Elsa playing fiddle, penny whistle and guitar, Irenie Rose on guitar and melodian, and Mr Lister playing accordion, there is that feeling as all three sing too of dropping into a traditional pub with live music playing, and it is this mixture of good music, good humour and a friendly atmosphere that the audience obviously took to their hearts for this show.

There is a little of everything mixed into this performance, reels, jigs, waulking songs, fishing songs and a few surprises along the way.
