An Tobar

Inspired by The Isle of Mull, it’s geography, music and people, Aidan has written a new work to celebrate the tenth anniversary of An Tobar, The Tobermory Arts Centre

An Tobar was recorded by some of the finest musicians in Scotland.

Aidan O'Rourke
Phil Bancroft
Tenor Saxophone
Martin Green
Catriona McKay
Scottish Harp
Martin O'Neil
Bodhran and Percussion

With poetry specially written for the project by award-winning writer Aonghas MacNeacail, the music reflects on the origins of communities and settlements on Mull and the effect of modern times on the island. The work was composed during a residency in Tobermory, where Aidan used the late Martyn Bennett’s old studio in An Tobar which Martyn used to call The Well.
