Deveron Projects' first ever musician in residence was the internationally acclaimed Paul Anderson, who joined us during the winter of 2003/04 as 'Toon Fiddler'. During his residency Paul produced the 'Strathbogie Collection' - A collection of tunes on vernacular Huntly life by our first 'Toon Fiddler' accompanied by pianist Andy Thorburn. In 2013 Paul returned to work on a new composition production. With his project 'Symphony Way' Paul Anderson proposes to compose a symphony for and inspired by the Hielan Way circuit.
Strathbogie is the former title of Huntly, and refers to the nearby river Bogie. The area is home to a wealth of tradition, culture, arts, heritage, social activity and significant historic individuals. How does one present a contemporary reflection of this wealth of activity in the rural heart of Scotland, yet still retain the distinctive traditional voice of Strathbogie? Paul's exceptional style of fiddling would prove essential to this task, and his talent for composition was a sensitive match for engaging with the people and places of Huntly.
A CD with the various soundtracks produced in Huntly is available from our Shop.
