Following a successful first, second and third concerts in the new ‘Music for Lunch’ series held recently at National Trust for Scotland Brodie Castle, a fourth and last eagerly awaited performance is planned for 31 October. The concert will be held in the superb surroundings of the main Victorian Drawing Room at the magnificent Castle, the ancestral home of the Brodie clan for over 800 years. Heading the days programme will be the well-respected local pianist Andy Hodge who has lived in Nairn for the last 29 years and studied at the Royal Marines School of Music on piano and trombone. Andy will be playing pieces by Gershwin.
The’ Music for Lunch’ series is coordinated by Bernardo Mantilla Baca, a resident of Brodie, and is a collaborative cultural exchange programme project between the National Trust for Scotland, Music Nairn, Findhorn Bay Arts and Fundacion Teatro Bolivar. It provides the opportunity for locals and visitors alike to experience top quality live music in the splendour and atmosphere of Brodie Castle. When visitors step through the fabulous castle entrance, they step back in time to the castle’s glory days, when the Brodie family were one of Scotland’s most prominent families. The Drawing Room has an impressive art collection many of which can be seen whilst listening to this live piano recital.
