Corrina Hewat

 

Harpist, singer and composer Corrina Hewat is widely recognised as one of Scotland’s most unique and innovative musicians. Hewat achieved recognition and critical acclaim for her work with bands Bachué (with pianist David Milligan), Vocal group Shine (with Mary Macmaster & Alyth McCormack) before going on to form Scots supergroup the Unusual Suspects. The essence of Corrina’s music lies in her passion for Scottish traditional music and song, and her effortless blending of other musical genres – a style shaped by a fascination with experimental music and improvisation. A reverence for tradition and a dedication to innovation. As a singer, her beautiful earthy voice, resonates with years of soaking up Scotland’s musical tradition, while echoing jazz and contemporary elements. She is currently Principal Scottish Harp Tutor at Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

 

Aithnítear an cruitire, amhránaí agus cumadóir Corrina Hewat ar dhuine de na ceoltóirí is uathúile agus is nuálaí as Albain. Fuair sí aitheantas agus moladh mór as a cuid oibre leis na bannaí ceoil Bachué (leis an bpianadóir David Milligan), an grúpa glórtha Shine (le Mary MacMaster agus Alyth McCormack) sular bhunaigh sí an grúpa mór Albanach The Unusual Suspects. Luíonn croí cheol Corrina sa phaisean atá aici do cheol agus d’amhráin na hAlban, agus an chaoi a ndéanann sí cineálacha éagsúla ceoil a shní le chéile gan stró – stíl atá múnlaithe ag an suim atá aici i gceol trialach agus sa tobchumadóireacht. Ardmheas ar thraidisiún agus tiomantas do nuálachas. Mar amhránaí, léiríonn a glór álainn ithreach blianta de bheith ag sú isteach traidisiún ceoil na hAlban, ach ag an am céanna cloistear gnéithe an tsnagcheoil agus an cheoil chomhaimseartha. Tá sí ina Príomhtheagascóir Cruite na hAlban ag Ardscoil Cheoil Ríoga na hAlban.
