Mike Vass is an award-winning composer and one of the most creative forces on the Scottish music scene.
He brings his latest work, Save His Calm, to Oban for an intimate gig at The Rockfield Centre. This is a collection of new songs in the folk tradition, featuring Mike on vocals, fiddle and tenor guitar, and effects.
As a musician, composer, producer and arranger Mike has amassed a body of work that encompasses early appearances as a livewire young fiddler, collaborations with many of the leading voices among today’s Scots and Gaelic tradition bearers, delivering multi-media performances, overseeing critically acclaimed recordings, and scoring for prestigious ensembles. He's a busy man, and we're really please to be welcoming him to Oban.
