Northern Arc Sessions: Capercaillie with Xabier Diaz & Adufeiras de Salitre
Capercaillie have done more for Scottish music than any other band. Their legacy is phenomenal and their exciting, contemporary interpretation of ancient Gaelic songs and music has brought them global success and a position at the very top of Celtic music’s international premier league. They’ve sold over one million albums worldwide, written music for Hollywood movies and had the first Gaelic top 40 single. They will be joined by renowned Galician singer, percussionist, piper and folklorist Xabier Diaz, and spectacular all-female vocal/percussion ensemble Adufeiras de Salitre. Their show will draw on 2018’s collaborative album Noró, derived from Diaz’s research into songs and rhythms from the whole of Iberia’s north-west, including Asturias and northern Portugal.
