Fine songs, great vocals,Northern humour.....in the Alps!

Celtic Country with a Savoie twist.

Des Horsfall….. Working with various Roots/Country-Rock band line-ups from his West Yorkshire base since the late 70s, Des Horsfall has had, in his own words,"a few skirmishes with fame". In the mid 80s he fronted Blues-Rock band Raw Deal that was managed by the legendary Alexis Korner until his untimely death.  In the 1990s Des was to be seen in hit videos on CMT and as opening act for Joe Ely, Steve Earle,Emmylou Harris,Chuck Prophet and many others. Tim O'Connor is a superb Celtic musician. Together, he and Des create the unique sound of The Transalpine Troubadours!

Aurora talk - Tue, 21st March, 7:45pm

Science, Myth & Magic

Kenny Taylor is a Highland-based writer, musician and broadcaster who is passionate about natural history but who also is fascinated by auroras. He's travelled from Alaska to Scandinavia to seek them, but enjoys a huge northern view from his highland garden. This boosts the chances of dancing sky appreciation at home.

Come along to the Atlantic Islands Centre to be illuminated by Kenny as he contemplates the science, myth and magic of the Northern Lights and shares with us his incredible photographs and images of the Dancing Ladies. This includes stills & time-lapse by Jamie MacPherson. To whet your appetite, examples of Jamie MacPherson's work can be seen in the photo above and in the video below.
