Award-winning multi instrumentalists Ross Ainslie and Tim Edey are old friends and two of the best musicians of their generation. For this virtual show they come together for a rare performance filmed at TPot studios in Ross native Perthshire and Tim’s adopted home.
Ross and Tim say: “These are uncertain times and the chances of gigs returning anytime soon are fairly slim so hopefully this wee gig will lift your spirits and give you some much needed optimism. We both really enjoyed playing together again and we must say a huge thank you to Robin Evans for recording the gig, Vickie Evans for filming and Calum Grant for filming and editing.”
The duo will join every venue for a fifteen minute zoom call after the show to say hi and answer any questions you might want to ask.
