Amy Laurenson and Miguel Girão

Amy and Miguel are a piano and guitar duo exploring the music traditions and folklore of Scotland, Scandinavia and Eastern Europe. Rooted in the traditional music scene, but having had classical training, the duo challenges the roles usually associated with their instruments. Through the interchange of melodic and harmonic roles within their arrangements, the duo draws influence from classical, contemporary, and jazz music.

Swiss Portrait

Swiss Portrait's DIY dreampop foundations were built by Scottish-born multi-instrumentalist and conceptual artist Michael Kay Terence. With over 100,000 monthly listeners on Spotify and headline gigs for BBC Introducing in Scotland at King Tuts, Swiss Portrait have exploded onto the Scottish scene. He is joined live by friends Rohan (drums) James (bass) and Paul (guitar).
