Francis MacDonald makes contemporary classical music that could sit comfortably on the roster of labels like Erased Tapes, ECM or Village Green. He is also a key figure in the Glasgow Indie-Rock Underground. His first band, C86 era favourites The Boy Hairdressers, comprised two future members of Teenage Fanclub and Turner Prize winning artist, Jim Lambie. An album of chamber music (string quarter & harp) ‘Hamilton Mausoleum Suite’ was composed, arranged and produced by Francis and features soloists from the Scottish Festival Orchestra. Fans of Bing & Ruth, Olafur Arnalds or Philip Glass’ solo piano pieces should find something to love here. I really loved your first classical album, 2015’s ‘Music for String Quartet, Piano and Celeste’. Sep 20’ is one of those pieces of music you hear once and know, I am going to love this forever. You don’t come from a classical background.

Recorded with the support of Creative Scotland, ‘Hamilton Mausoleum Suite’ is an album of original chamber music (string quartet & harp) composed, arranged and produced by Scottish, BAFTA-nominated composer/songwriter and Teenage Fanclub drummer Francis Macdonald.
