Pop up ensemble in Carrick

The Carrick Ensemble
The Carrick Ensemble

Two Baroque concerts have been held in aid of the Carrick Centre, on 29th October and 26th November 2016 These were a great success, and have raised over £600 for the work of the centre. Staging baroque music is most likely a first for Maybole, unless it was played at Maybole Castle 200 - 300 years ago! The programme centred around JS Bach’s evergreen Brandenburg Concertos, and the concerts ended with Corelli’s sparkling Christmas Concerto.

The Carrick Ensemble is a pop-up group, set up by Robert De Mey and Paul Woods. Soloists were Gilmour MacLeod on Harpischord, Elaine Hawthorn on flute; Emma Baird, Sean Morrison and Thomas Davies (violin), and Lynne Hope and Isla Cameron (recorder).
