Gary Innes and Friends at Hootananny
Music - Folk, Sat 1 Apr 2017
67 Church Street,
Accordion in hand, Gary Innes truly has the world at his fingertips – though at heart he’s never far from his native Scottish Highlands. Over recent years he’s gigged in China, Malaysia, the USA, the Middle East and Kazakhstan, among other exotic destinations, but between times he’s just as busy playing rural village halls and remote island festivals back home, from Acharacle to Achiltibuie, Shetland to Skye.
It’s this harmony between deep local roots and international outlook, allied with superlative technique and sublime creative artistry, that sets Gary’s musicianship apart. A founder member of accordion supergroup Box Club, and more recently of hotly-tipped Highland outfit Mànran – the first band this century to break the UK Top 100 with a Gaelic song – he also features as a regular guest with veteran folk-rockers Runrig, and in a duo with award-winning singer/guitarist Ewan Robertson.
