From Scottish duo Charlie Grey and Joseph Peach, and filmmaker Hamish MacLeod, Air Iomall a film and suite of new music, inspired by a voyage aboard the tall ship Wylde Swan to some now uninhabited islands deep in the North Atlantic, some of Scotland’s most remote, and remarkable places. The film is centered around the first performance of this new music on St Kilda- the most remote part of the UK, on the 88th anniversary of the evacuation of its native population.
The project is supported by Help Musicians UK and Creative Scotland
Charlie Grey and Joseph Peach make music on the piano and fiddle. They are Scottish folk musicians, interested in making music filled with spontaneity, sensitivity and freedom.
