Emerging Artists return

The Fountaineers performing on stage.

The Usher Hall has been proudly supporting Live Music Now for 13 years and the new programme below gives audiences the chance to discover great new talent from across the country.

There are 8 concerts to choose. Take the opportunity to enjoy the Monday morning series where all tickets cost £3 and children and students go free.

Our programme kicks off 4 September with the captivating violin/accordion Ros-Turowska Duo, made up of Maria Turowska and Sofia Ro.

Following them are soprano Rosie Lavery and pianist Anna Michels, who perform a wide repertoire from operatic material to traditional Scots tunes; and the half-Cuban half-Italian Saudade Duo, comprised of violinist Eddy Betancourt and guitarist Jacopo Lazzaretti.

Finishing off the September programme is British pianist Phillip Leslie, described as 'an unassuming prodigy' by the Hastings Independent Press.

In December we welcome the Glasgow-based Slideshow Trombone Quartet who formed at the Royal Conservatoire Scotland.

Following them in January is ensemble Cordes en Ciel, which features Estonian lutenist/soprano Kristiina Watt and French/American soprano Héloïse Bernard; and Lark Duo, who seek to give representation to under-represented composers.

Our programme concludes with The Fountaineers, who perform classic Bluegrass and old-time repertoire.
