The wonderful Kathryn Tickell ( Queen of the Northumbrian pipes) with her band at Stockton Arc. One of the less likely traditional music lineups:
Northumbrian pipes/fiddle
Piano Accordion/Clog
Harp
Cello
But tremendous playing all the same.

A private concert to celebrate a friend's birthday. He'd booked Boo Hewerdine, a great, but mysteriously little known singer/songwriter with several albums to his name and he was fabulous.
Next gig , another session with Northumberland's own King of the English Concertina and small pipes - Alastair Anderson.

Rosanne Cash at Gateshead. A great concert from someone who was bred to music , songs from her father, from her grandparents, her own music and a particularly gothic Ode to Billy Joe.
Next gig (?) - 4 harp players in concert as part of the Ryedale Festival.
Enjoy summer

Aly Bain, Bruce Molsky and Ale Moller - a real treat to see such good musicians, who clearly enjoy playing together, at close hand. Aly Bain's fiddle playing and fingering is a thing of wonder.
Next gig : Transatlantic Sessions with Sly Bain , Jerry Douglas and whoever else turns up, February 2016.

I assume that Sly Bain is Aly's cunning brother?

Please don't think i was being critical - my typing is horrendous and I have to go over all my messages several times correcting errors before I dare post them. It was just that in this case I thought the slip was quite amusing!

As for this topic, I'm afraid it's been so long since I went to a gig that I really can't remember which one it was. Nor have I any planned yet though I may go and see Love Revisited in Aberdeen next year.

Next gig - Reid Hall, Forfar, 3rd June - Donnie Munro & band, Skippinish, and Sketch. The latter describe their music as "mutant ceilidh techno", and I understand they are an "electro/techno/trad collective" from Skye and I suspect are either going to be brilliant or awful.
