Incredible Scottish duo Twelfth Day perform their composition Another Phase in History in the beautiful setting of Paisley Abbey. Orcadian fiddler Catriona Price and Peebles harpist Esther Swift have played together for over 10 years and it was TRADtv’s pleasure to film them for a second year as part of our coverage of The Visit 2017.

In April 2017 TRADtv teamed up with Showcase Scotland Expo to capture exclusive performances at The Visit showcasing event. We filmed live traditional music sessions in Paisley (in Paisley Town Hall, Paisley Abbey and Paisley Arts Centre) and Stirling (in The Tolbooth).
The Showcase Scotland Expo team take delegates from North America to different parts of the country to soak up the history and culture and enjoy showcase performances by a selection of the most exciting contemporary traditional music artists in distinct and special venues.
