Inner Hebrides – portraits of our artists

23 July 2021

It's fair to say that the last 18 months have been a rollercoaster for any performing arts organisation - here at Hebrides we've been repeatedly planning, cancelling, rescheduling, reorganising and hoping that things will start to settle down. We're grateful that Creative Scotland have supported us during this time with a Sustaining Creative Development grant which offered us the chance to organise a series of five Covid-safe solo performances by members of the Ensemble - but as we started to plan these in early 2021 it became clear that we wouldn't be able to welcome an audience and the performances would need to take place behind closed doors.

Thanks to the imagination of our players, Artistic Director Will Conway and our amazing filming partners Flux Video, the solo concerts have transformed to become five intimate filmed portraits of our artists - showcasing some of their favourite works for their instruments as well as including interviews which illustrate what the music means to them, and how they've felt over the last year.

The final films will be released throughout the autumn and feature Charlotte Ashton, flute; Yann Ghiro, clarinet; Zoë Beyers, violin; Scott Dickinson, viola; and William Conway, cello.
