House Concert – Scott MacMillan & Colin Grant
February 6, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
New England Celtic Arts Presents: Scott MacMillan & Colin Grant
In July of 2015, award-winning composers and multi-instrumentalists Scott Macmillan and Colin Grant, sat down at Macmillan’s home in Brook Village Nova Scotia to start compiling new and old tunes from their collective traditional and original repertoires. Until that time, they had performed off-the-cuff performances together in venues ranging from the Doryman Tavern in Cheticamp to Celtic Connections festival in Glasgow, and the opportunity to arrange and compose yielded a wide spectrum of musical results. Tunes from Scott’s tune-book “Scoobie Tunes” which hadn’t yet seen action were spun into classical, jazz, funk, rock, and blues directions. While the resulting album Good2Go follows a traditional music path of tunes combined into medleys, the musical interplay between the two musicians speaks to the experience, chops, and element of good-old belly rubbing humor that keeps the tunes on a fun, lively path.
On July 15 2016 just one year later, they released their debut duo album, Good2Go. It was recorded at FMP Matrix in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia by Scott Ferguson, and Jennyfer Brickenden is Executive Producer. The recording features 15 tracks of acoustic instrumental medleys, including a number of Macmillan’s and Grant’s original compositions arranged with traditional and contemporary tunes from Cape Breton, Scotland, Ireland, and beyond.
