musicThursday 29th & Friday 30th JanuaryRobyn StapletonRobyn Stapleton
8pm @ the Cairndale Hotel, Dumfries
BBC Radio Scotland’s Young Traditional Musician of the Year, Robyn Stapleton is preparing to wow audiences at the Big Burns Supper later this month, with two concerts featuring the songs of Robert Burns.
It was through Burns that Robyn first became interested in traditional music. At the age of 7, Robyn began competing in the regional Burns competitions, and ever since, the songs of Burns have been an important source of inspiration for the young singer.
Since winning the title of BBC Radio Scotland’s Young Traditional Musician in February last year, Robyn has gone from strength to strength. In September 2014, Robyn shared the stage with Katherine Jenkins, performing with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra at the Last Night of the Proms.
Robyn is extremely proud of her own Scots dialect and is committed to promoting traditional songs and the Scots language in her home region. She is the current winner of Dumfries & Galloway Life’s Person of the Year award and was recently made an ‘Ambassador of the Scots Language’ (Education Scotland).
‘Gifted with a beautiful voice, warm, rich, flexible and distinctive. Couple this with a true love and respect for her material and the ability to engage an audience… you have a very special singer indeed.’ (Sheena Wellington)
Tickets cost £13/£10 concessions, and are available in advance from the Munches Street box office, or telephone 01387 271820.

1pm @ the New Performance Space, Electric Theatre Workshop, 28 Munches Street, Dumfries
An Aberdeenshire musician is set to bring her live show to Dumfries with a unique performance as part of the Big Burns Supper Festival. Fiona Soe Paing will perform a multi-media set with music and visuals from her forthcoming album ‘Alien Lullabies’.
Fresh from presenting work at London’s global festival of music ideas, Music Tech Fest, and a show at Cineworld for Aberdeen International Film Festival, Fiona will perform with projected animation by New Zealand artist Zennor Alexander in what promises to be a hypnotic combination of cinema screening and live gig.
The musician, who has drawn comparisons to Scandinavian songstress Bjork, will combine her blend of off-world electronica and ethereal soundscapes with stunning 3D animations and live vocals to create an immersive and memorable cinematic experience.
Fiona's work was recently rated as "Outstanding" in the 2014 Noise Festival Showcase Awards, curated by electronic music pioneer Brian Eno, and her last EP release "Tower Of Babel" was given a Four Stars rating in The Skinny Magazine.
Tickets cost £6.50/£4.50 concessions, and are available in advance from the Munches Street box office, or telephone 01387 271820.

Acclaimed by audiences and critics alike, this 5-star production retells Shakespeare's enduring story through the eyes of a younger generation betrayed by their elders and struggling to make sense of their emotions in a world they haven't created.
