Porto Presents Photos of Scottish West Highland Trail with Music by Celtic Jam
Raleigh, NC, October 15, 2006 --(PR.com)-- Photographer Peter Christopher Hutson will unveil his newest images of the Scottish West Highland Trail at Porto in North Hills on Saturday, October 21, 7-10 p.m., during a special in-store event that will include live music by recording artists Celtic Jam and wine selections from Total Wine in North Hills.

Hutson is well-known in the Raleigh area for transforming digital photograph into painterly works of art with an illustrative, timeless quality. Several of his images have been exhibited and sold in Porto over the past year. The October event will provide the first viewing of photographs he made during his trip to the Scottish West Island Trail this summer.

Specializing in traditional Irish Music, Celtic Jam has been entertaining audiences throughout North Carolina since 1994 and, according to Porto owners Emily Barrett and Michael Perry, is the perfect complement to an evening of viewing Hutson’s new work.

As part of their performance of traditional Irish music and song, Celtic Jam features a wide range of instruments including: fiddle, uileann (Irish) bagpipes, tin whistle, flutes, bouzouki, guitar, bodhran, concertina, and piano. The band includes Al McCanless (fiddle/banjo) who, in addition to recording with Celtic Jam, has recorded with Mike Cross, the Red Clay Ramblers, the Bluegrass Experience, and Alice Gerrard.

Peter Hutson’s works will be available for purchase during the showing. The event is free and open to the public.
