PODCAST: Hamish Napier
Student pianist Hamish Napier was raised in the Scottish Highlands and learned flute, whistles, and voice, in addition to his principal instrument. After earning multiple award nominations for young Scottish musicians and recording with some of the country's leading musicians, Napier enrolled at Berklee to pursue an interest in fusing traditional music with jazz.
The American version of the Hamish Napier Band brings together some of Berklee's best jazz and bluegrass student musicians, and has played the Celtic Connections Festival, and the Glasgow International Jazz Festival. This summer it plays in July and August as part of Berklee's Summer in the City series.
This edition of Sounds of Berklee features a Napier original, "Dr. Flute."
