Founded in 2009, Artisan as a piano trio, with Aisling O’Dea – violin, Clea Friend – cello, and Simon Smith – piano. The trio performed regularly in their home city of Edinburgh and around Scotland, delivering exciting performances of core piano trio repertoire alongside commissions of new works from Scottish and UK composers. The group has been actively engaged in musical education activities and in developing improved musical access to all areas of the community.
This year Artisan has reincarnated itself as a duo, violin and cello, allowing for more versatility in range of venues, collaborations and combinations of sound and media.
Artisan are launching ‘Almost Unseen’ an exciting new album of music by composer Suzanne Parry.
