Improvisation and innovation are the themes of Ceòl’s Craic 2013 with artists and filmmakers, including vocalist Hanna Tuulikki, drawing inspiration from traditional Gaelic stories and songs to create something out of the ordinary. A Boat Retold by Sean Martin and Louise Milne is a poetic documentary about a voyage to the Shiant Isles, while Andy Mackinnon’s Sruth nam Fear Gorm tells the story of the blue men who haunt the Isles. Both films use new music from pianist and writer Peter Urpeth, who will also perform live with the internationally renowned vocal improvisation artist Maggie Nicols.
