Saturday 14 October 2023 - 19.00 - 21.45


The Spire Church

A concert celebrating the 30th anniversary of Farnham-based arts charity, Creative Response, featuring two of Scotland’s most gifted young traditional musicians, Ryan Young and David Foley, plus support from DiElle.

Described by The Scotsman as “a force of nature”, Ryan Young has twice been a finalist in the prestigious BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of the Year competition and has been nominated for multiple awards, winning ‘Up And Coming Artist Of The Year’ at the Scots Trad Awards in 2017. His expressive and scintillating fiddle playing has drawn enthusiastic responses from audiences across the UK, Europe and America. He will be accompanied by David Foley on guitar, who also holds a clutch of awards for Scottish traditional music, most notably with the band RURA.

What to expect: Ryan is a rising star on the Scottish trad music scene. He plays the fiddle with mesmerising intensity, expressiveness and virtuosity, taking traditional Scottish music to exciting new heights. Ryan is joined on his UK-wide album launch tour by long-time friend and collaborator, David Foley, who provides the driving rhythmic accompaniment on guitar. In the support slot, DiElle is a songstress with a knack for brutally honest lyrics, and a voice that could bring a tear to the eye of the most stone-hearted souls.

Proceeds from the concert will be donated to Creative Response, an independent arts charity providing and promoting access to creative practice and the arts for the wellbeing of vulnerable people in our community. Registered Charity No. 1096890
