Mike Vass is one of the most creative forces on the Scottish music scene. As a musician, composer, producer and arranger Vass has amassed a body of work that encompasses early appearances as a livewire young fiddler, collaborations with many of the leading voices among today’s Scots and Gaelic tradition bearers, delivering multi-media performances, overseeing critically acclaimed recordings, and scoring for prestigious ensembles.

'Lighthouse Songs' Is a collaborative, remote writing & recording project from Mike Vass & Errollyn Wallen. The project will see them create a new work and record it remotely. Mike in his home studio in Glasgow, and Errollyn in her lighthouse in the North of Scotland.
The funding from Help Musicians will allow us the time to create this new work, and to buy some equipment to help with the recording.
