  • Scozzesi

    Saturday, 12th November 2016

    7:30pm Gibson Hall, Dollar Academy FK14 7DU

    Boy band comes to Dollar! Don't worry, they're posh and keep their waistcoats on.

    An exciting new male quartet of classically trained singers. Scozzesi is Italian for 'Scottish men', although their repertoire ranges far and wide from Puccini to Gilbert and Sullivan to traditional tunes in four part harmony.

    There’s some serious talent there – young conservatoire graduates with numerous opera roles under their belts. The Scotsman

    Accompained by the dazzling Ed Cohen, who played for us 2 seasons ago, this should be an evening of pure melody and passion.

  • Wildings

    Saturday, 8th October 2016

    7:30pm Gibson Hall, Dollar Academy FK14 7DU

    Wildings are an all-female trio playing a blend of traditional and new music with a wholly modern freshness.

    Multi-layered strings and flutes, fresh reworkings of traditional song, a sprinkling of gothic piano, contemplative, filmic soundscapes, the humour and verve of a dance band; Wildings’ ambitious, heartfelt arrangements draw the ear to a new detail with each listen, and create a contagious atmosphere of high energy, fun and spellbinding intensity (Hamish Napier).

    This will kick off the season with energy and sparkle!
