Magnus's Many Musical Talents

Magnus Turpie is a musician from Edinburgh. He has been hit hard by lockdown, and with the withdrawal of his Day service, has spent 11 of the past 12 months at home and unable to connect with his friends and other musical pals at all, other than by Zoom.

In spite of this difficult period though, Magnus has characteristically striven to keep positive and he has delivered a few ‘lockdown live’ performances over Facebook live.

Here are a few bits and pieces of videos he has made over the past while:

Magnus's Day in the Life with Paragon Music
For the folk at Crisis at Christmas
Magnus on the fiddle playing harmony to contribute to the Christmas community project by the band Fara
Magnus on trombone with GD Jam

Up until then, Magnus has been a regular player at ceilidhs, pub sessions and festivals over the years, has participated in many music-making programmes which have helped him to develop his skills, including Tinderbox Collective, Totally Sound, City Music Café, GD JAM (Edinburgh Jazz & Blues festival), Paragon Ensemble, and Drake Music Scotland.

Finally, to see Magnus in concert with Fionn Crombie Angus on fiddle, tune in to their event next Tuesday 23rd March at 8pm on Facebook live, there will be trad Celtic tunes and, no doubt, a bit of banter too – you can find all the details at: https://www.facebook.com/events/432173531188557/
