Adam Bulley & Chas Mackenzie coming to the Traverse Theatre
One of the most highly rated duo’s in the country, Adam Bulley & Chas Mackenzie will appear at the Traverse Theatre on 21st May.
The pair will deliver a fiery, energy fuelled array of acoustic music styles. Weaving effortlessly between Bluegrass, Gypsy Jazz, Folk and Pop, they have performed on some of the biggest stages in the UK, alongside some of the world’s greatest musicians.
Originally performing under the name of Wingin’ It, the duo won a coveted “Danny Kyle” Award at Celtic Connections in 2007. Other highlights include performing regularly at the acclaimed Ullapool Guitar Festival, alongside a host of the world’s top guitarists, as well as multiple appearances at Celtic Connections. In 2012 they were commissioned to write 10 minutes of new music to celebrate the life of the renowned piper Gordon Duncan, which was then performed to a sold out Perth Concert Hall.
In 2013 the duo released their debut album “For the Many”. Making full use of the recording studio, as well as some of Scotland’s most in-demand session musicians, the project soon took on a life of its own. It has received widespread acclaim from musicians and critics alike.
Most recently the duo were asked to support the legendary guitarist Larry Carlton at Celtic Connections in 2016.
Propelling the acoustic guitars and mandolin to new levels of expression and excitement their live show is at once an informal, life affirming and memorable musical experience.
