Project SmokSaturday 2nd October 2021

Doors open 7:30pm

Concert starts 8:00PM

Neo-traditional trio of nonconformist and progressive Scottish folk music Blasting onto the scene, Project Smok is Pablo Lafuente, Ewan Baird and BBC Young Traditional Musician of the year 2020 Ali Levack, whose forward thinking Scottish traditional music has set them apart since their formation in 2017. They released their EP Esperanza in March 2021, after their debut album Bayview was shortlisted for 'Best Album of the Year' 2020, nominated for the 'Belhaven Bursary for Innovation' 2019 and nominated for 'Best up and coming Artist' 2018 at the MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Awards. Known for their ability to effortlessly blend trad music with contemporary new-age pop influences, Project Smok are at their most comfortable pushing boundaries, making listeners stop and re-evaluate their musical expectations. They do away with any perceived limits of genre from the first note. The close-knit group meld naturally between the innovative, explosive and emotive, drawing outside inspiration from indie pop acts like The 1975, LANY and Bon Iver, to more time-honoured, West Coast styles of playing.
