Caitlin-Jo Smith – Wall of Rock, September 2014

Caitlin-Jo Smith is a young musician from Elgin who is very passionate about music and the first time we met her she was confident and hilarious. She sings, plays fiddle, keyboard, bagpipes, ukulele – in fact can turn her hand to pretty much anything. So it was a delight to have her at the Wall of Rock in 2014, even if she did get rained off. Which then quickly turned to hail. That’s Scottish weather for you! Take a listen to this bright young talent.

These guys were playing behind a 15KW system at the Wall of Rock festival in Lossiemouth in September 2014, with 10KW of sub bass and 5 KW of mid/high speaker cabinets. Front of house desk was a Soundcraft GB8-40, and the monitor desk was a Soundcraft LX7ii-32. Two Allen & Heath ICE-16 recorders were being used. Microphones used were Audix on drums (D6 kick, i5 snare, D4 floor tom, D2 rack toms, ADX51 overheads, f9 hi-hats), Sennheiser EW135 G3 wireless on vocals, and Shure SM57 on instruments. The light show used was the full EatAudio, with over 100 DMX lights being controlled via Windows based software.
