Nairn Musician and Composer Vass is best known for his duo work with his sister Ali, and for his previous work with Folk Band of the Year ‘Malinky’.
String Theory is an entirely self-penned album based on Mike’s Celtic Connections commission in 2010 which was part of the festival’s New Voices series. One of the highlights, the avant-garde piece Man’s Search, inspired by Viktor Frankl’s best-selling book (Man’s Search for Meaning), was described as ‘utterly compelling’ (Barry Gordon) and was subsequently featured by the Victor Frankl Institute in Austria to commemorate Frankl’s birthday. BBC Radio Scotland previewed tracks from String Theory as part of their St. Andrews Day Celebration broadcast in November, and during Celtic Connections 2011.
