Folk Degree Final Recitals: Jordan Aikin

Sage Two

No Latecomers will be admitted once an individual recital is underway.

Free daytime recitals in which Newcastle University’s BMus in Folk and Traditional Music degree students give performances that show the culmination of their four years of study.

Each concert will be different, conceived and created by one student, but usually with a band of others to brung in depth and diversity.

All of these performances are assessed and form a significant part of a student’s final mark, and for this reason no Latecomers will be admitted once an individual recital is underway.

3pm – Jordan Aikin (Pipes)

Jordan Aikin is a Great Highland Bagpiper, hailing from the banks of the Tyne. His time is now sadly coming to a close on the Folk and Traditional Music Degree at Newcastle University with this, his final pipe down! After nearly four years of tuition from Calum MacCrimmon, Jordan is set to bring all he has learned to the concert.

He will combine traditional tunes with self-penned compositions, approaching the arrangements with a contemporary outlook. Joining him on stage will be an exciting band with a full arsenal of instruments to bring his arrangements to life!

Part of What's On in May and June

Some of the biggest names in music visit the banks of the Tyne this May and June while we also have innovative talks and performances as part of Thinking Digital Arts 2017 & Hexham Gathering returns.
