Distil – Hands Up For Trad

About Distil – Hands Up For Trad

Once again we welcome the annual Distil performance, featuring compositions by some of Scotland’s leading traditional composers including this year for the first time two bands Heisk and Tannara, and performed with unique flair and expertise by the ensemble Mr McFall’s Chamber. Distil is run by Hands up for Trad, who also organise the annual Scottish Trad Music Awards.

The list of composers for the 2019 performance will be added to the Distil web page when they are announced.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Distil – Hands Up For Trad are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
