The best of Scottish folk music in Ribe May 13 – 8pm

We will hear the classic, big ballads of Scotland, traditional Scots songs and modern compositions by Dick and Rod and others, including political songs supporting the underprivileged.
We will hear the two musicians separately and together – two distinctive styles that can harmonize.

Dick Gaughan is recognized as one of Scotland’s absolute leaders in the field of traditional and contemporary song.
His world-wide reputation as a mould-breaking guitarist and uniquely distinctive vocalist takes him all over the globe, interpreting meaningful and purposeful songs for spellbound audiences. In Denmark he is a regular favourite at Tønder Festival, as well as touring with Rod Sinclair.
Two film clips showing different sides of Dick Gaughan’s masterful musicianship: Wild Mountain Thyme, featuring Dick accompanied by Emmylou Harris and Rufus Wainwright.
Dick Gaughan wrote the hard-hitting song Both Sides the Tweed
Rod Sinclair is Ribe’s own local Scottish folk singer. Rod has been involved with the big international folk event Tønder Festival from the very beginning, as musician, organizer, presenter and TV host. Rod has published CDs, song books, teaching materials and poetry collections and has performed on countless radio and TV shows.
Rod’s music has been known and loved in Ribe for years. Enjoy the film of Rod entertaining a group of visitors on a course at Danhostel Ribe in March 2012:
Recently, Rod’s poetic side has been in play. The Scottish folk musician has composed songs and music for Denmark’s largest nature reserve, the Wadden Sea National Park. At the official opening in October 2010 on the Head Meadow close to Danhostel Ribe, Rod Sinclair Quintet presented the National Park anthem Gryden, (The Dip) (Hear the song in this film of the inauguration)
