DESCRIPTION:

Project Smok is Ali Levack, Ewan Baird and Pablo Lafuente, whose nonconformist and progressive Scottish traditional music has set them apart since their formation in 2017.

SCOTLAND ON TOUR

Known for their ability to effortlessly blend trad music with new-age pop influences, their tunes are built around the distinctive piping of BBC Young Traditional Musician of the Year 2020 Ali Levack, paired with Ewan Baird’s skilled bodhran playing and Pablo Lafuente’s nuanced guitar, electric guitar and production.

In 2020 they released their debut album, Bayview. The record was brought to life in Edwyn Collins’ famous Clashnarrow Studio in Helmsdale using special analogue and vintage equipment to showcase their sound. The album cemented their place as a young band at the forefront of the traditional music scene.

“I don’t think I can find words suitable for how good they are” Bruce MacGregor, BBC Travelling Folk
