2014 Placemaking Award Joint Winners – Inksters & Scottish Ensemble

Inksters Solicitors enabled Scottish Ensemble to take a genre defying programme of music to Shetland in 2013. Seavaigers is a double concerto for Shetland fiddle and clarsach composed by Sally Beamish for performers Chris Stout on fiddle and Catriona McKay on clarsach and the Scottish Ensemble.

The project was a great example of a small business that is willing to invest in something that enriches an existing culture and pushes boundaries. It was also an excellent example of a business and an arts organisation working prosperously with one another with the potential to progress towards working together on future projects. Furthermore, the project was about connecting places, which made it truly resonate with the final destination.

In this case study, Fraser Anderson from Scottish Ensemble elaborates on this inspirational partnership and discusses the impacts it had on Inksters Solicitors and Scottish Ensemble, as well as the effect it had on the local community of its final destination, Shetland.
