Morag Brown & Lewis Powell-Reid

Knockengorroch 2024 Artists - Morag and Lewis

We are delighted to welcome Morag Brown & Lewis Powell-Reid to the Knockengorroch stage.

With a rich repertoire of acoustic instrumental music from Scottish traditions along with many others, Morag and Lewis have been performing together for over a decade, both as a duo and as part of larger ensembles. Their shared intuition and love of spontaneity allows them to freely move between melody, harmony and improvisation.

Lewis performs with accordion, cittern, guitar and bouzouki, while Morag plays fiddle and five-string fiddle. Both musicians have performed extensively with bands playing music from the Balkans, Greece and beyond, and have pursued these musical interests in depth over the years. It is this tangle of influences and experiences that nourish and bring colour to their work as a duo, and it is their familiarity with each other that allows their music to unravel anew on each playing. With empathy, and sensitivity, Lewis and Morag make a conversation of every performance: musician to musician, performers to listeners, and back again. In one moment their music might be heard to draw deeply on their Scottish and Celtic heritage, the next to slip into a sound which is altogether eclectic. Together, they speak their music with one voice.

Not to be missed!
